Join Our Volunteer Team
Chimney Rock Interpretive Association (CRIA) volunteers support the mission to preserve and protect Chimney Rock National Monument (CRNM) while educating the public. Our volunteers learn and become familiar with what archaeologists and astronomers know about the ancient people of Chimney Rock. CRIA provides material on the ancient Puebloan culture, history, lifestyle and the site itself. In addition to a 2-day training session each Spring, volunteers receive a comprehensive training manual and on-the-job continuous training. Volunteers can choose to join one or more of our teams!
For more information on how to join our volunteer team, please email us email@example.com.
