You Can Help

The sales at Sun Father’s Way Gift Shop at Coronado Historic Site (CHS) accounted for over 40% of the Friends revenue in 2018. Those funds were put to work supporting the rangers and facilities at CHS and Jemez Historic Site, as well, programs offered by the Friends throughout the year. Volunteering in the Shop is not only a great way to meet visitors from around the world, share your knowledge of New Mexico and our history and keep your business skills sharp, but you will also help with funding Friends of Coronado HS operations. If you are a member of the Friends and have at least 3 hours a week to cover a shift, contact Sara Pikelny at You will be thoroughly trained in store-operations and inventory and become part of the team that supports the Coronado and Jemez Historic Sites. Please consider joining the fun!
