Colorado River State Historic Park would like to invite all interested volunteers to an Introduction to Volunteering informational session at the park on Thursday, November 16th, at 1:00 p.m.
The park is seeking volunteers to assist with guided tours for the general public, online research assistance, maintenance assistance, and skilled handyman maintenance. Duties for each of the positions will vary, and no experience is required for most positions.
The informational session will introduce prospective volunteers to the park volunteer program, discuss position openings, and how to become a volunteer. There will also be a short history of the park and an optional tour of the park grounds.
The Colorado River Park is a historic, day-use park that features six of the original buildings from the old Yuma Quartermaster Depot, which served as an Army supply depot from 1865-1883. In the early 1900s, the site became the Bureau of Reclamation’s Yuma Project headquarters. Permanent exhibits explore the past, present, and future of the Colorado River, as well as the site’s military history.
