Americas State Parks


The State Parks Division oversees a curator program, where interested groups help to maintain a specific park or site (often a cultural or archaeological site) with State Parks guidance. This program is integral to our ability to properly care for the resources under our care, and also provides willing people with an opportunity to volunteer and assist with special park projects. Below is a list of the current groups who have of?cial curator agreements with State Parks, a summary of their activities, and contact information. We urge you to join them!
