Sponsoring Program: Hueco Tanks State Park and Historic Site

Hueco Tanks State Park and Historic Site is seeking passionate and motivated park hosts! Nestled in the Chihuahuan Desert, Hueco Tanks has been a refuge for people for over 10,000 years.

Remnants and stories of the past have been left behind through pictographs and archaeological artifacts that are scattered throughout the park.

Don't miss the chance to immerse yourself in this beautiful and unique site.

In exchange for a minimum of 24 volunteer hours a week (30 hours split for couples), hosts will be provided with a full hook-up site (50-amp water/electric). Park hosts must be at least 18 years old and a criminal background check is required. Park host duties include, but aren't limited to:
