Open Space Volunteer

Volunteering with Bernalillo County Open Space is a great way to give back to the community and contribute to the preservation of your Open Space lands. Through their hard work and dedication, volunteers make important contributions to areas such as interpretive and educational activities and stewardship of natural and cultural resources.

If you would like to become a volunteer, please email openspace@bernco.gov and we will get in contact with you in order to discuss your experience, availability, and interests.

 

Current Volunteer Opportunities

Stewardship Cohorts: Participate in recurring group volunteer workdays to complete tasks such as hands-on restoration, plant care, gardening, invasive plant removal, trail maintenance, and more. Cohort volunteers can participate at a single Open Space site or work at multiple sites if desired.

Museum Docents (Greeters, Guides, and Lesson leaders): Docents are the point of contact for a variety of different visitors to Gutiérrez-Hubbell House and help connect them to the history, flora and fauna found there as well as the many activities that take place at the site.

  • Greeters welcome walk-in visitors to the museum, provide an orientation to the building and grounds, and provided interpretive tours upon request.
  • Guides assist with interpretive tours for scheduled groups, with specific themes and topics tailored to the group’s needs.
  • Lesson Leaders work with school groups on field trips to facilitate educational activities.

Service Days: Assist in larger-scale stewardship activities such as trash cleanup or planting during special events designed to bring the community together for service and learning.
