Staff seeks assistance with school tours, more
Volunteers are needed to assist with general maintenance, guided tours for the general public and field trip tours for schoolchildren.
The informational session will introduce the park volunteer program, explain the kinds of help that's needed and describe how to become a volunteer. There will also be a short presentation on the history of the park and an optional tour of the grounds, buildings and exhibits.
The 10-acre Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park includes some of the oldest buildings in Arizona, five of which date back to the period (1864-1883) when the U.S. army supplied all the forts in the Southwest from this site on the shores of the Colorado River. In the early 1900s, the site became the Bureau of Reclamation's Yuma Project headquarters, where the first major water projects in the West were planned and launched.
