Quartermaster Depot park seeks volunteers

YUMA, ARIZONA - Have an interest in Yuma history -- and some free time on your hands?

Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park is seeking volunteers to assist with guided tours for the general public and for school children, as well as general maintenance duties.  Duties for each of the positions will vary, and no experience is required.  

All interested volunteers are invited to attend an Introduction to Volunteering session at the park at 1:30 P.M. Thursday, Dec. 8.

The informational session will introduce prospective volunteers to the park volunteer program, discuss position openings, and how to become a volunteer. There will also be a short history of the park and an optional tour of the park grounds.

The Yuma Quartermaster Depot is a historic, day-use park that features six of the original buildings from the old Yuma Depot, which served as an Army supply depot from 1865-1883. In the early 1900s, the site became the Bureau of Reclamation’s Yuma Project headquarters. Permanent exhibits explore the military history of the site, the early irrigation history of Yuma, and the park’s connection to the Colorado River.

For more information, please contact Tammy Snook at (928) 247-6266. Yuma Quartermaster Depot State Historic Park is located at 201 N. 4th Ave.
