The Tubac Presidio State Historic Park and Museum is run almost exclusively by volunteers! Volunteers are the heart and soul of the park and are essential to keeping the park running smoothly. Volunteers will also be able to learn new skills, make new connections, and work on exciting projects! At The Tubac Presidio State Historic Park there are a variety of volunteer opportunities available. These roles may be seasonal, yearly, and even short-term for those who would like to partake in the exciting projects going on at the Tubac Presidio State Historic Park. We are always taking in new volunteers for every position!



Volunteers opening the park will make sure the park is ready for guests before 9:00 a.m. This includes walking the grounds, unlocking doors and gates, making sure lights are on and exhibit demonstrations are illuminated, and raising the flags at the entrance of the park! Closers will make sure the park is closed after 5:00 p.m. to ensure opening is as smooth as possible. This includes walking the grounds and locking doors and gates, making sure lights are off, taking down and folding flags, and closing out the cash register. Volunteers may opt for either position.
