Of these, El Presidio is of international significance and the focus of many program initiatives. Exhibitions at the Officers’ Club and other sites throughout the park welcome the public and interpret the Presidio’s heritage. Activities of the Interpretation Office take place in the public sphere and the Archaeological Specialist interacts with visitors. The incumbent demonstrates skill as a spokesperson for the program explaining the process and findings of research on a daily basis.

The Trust offers a competitive compensation and benefits package.  Applications received by December 13, 2019 will receive first consideration.
