The Center offers volunteer opportunities in the field, office/lab, or with our annual conference. We appreciate your interest, and could not do this without volunteers who donate their time to help us with our research and mission.

Field Work

Throughout the year we work on various projects from surveys to excavations. This is a great way get a hands on learning experience about archaeology and the Big Bend. Accommodations while working in the field vary, but we usually camp.


We always need people who are willing to help us organize, photograph and digitize our various collections of photos, field notes, books, and artifacts.

Annual Conference

Help us get organized for our annual conference in November by making packets, name tags, setting up tables, etc.
