Art Team

Art volunteers set up, tear down, and help the art installations be available for everybody to enjoy during the event. This position also has the potential for early entry and post event land sustainability.


Center Camp

Center Camp is the town square of Saguaro Man. It’s a space that provides art, performances, meetings, classes, and a place to hang out, catch some shade, and meet people. From pre-playa décor planning and prop-making to on-site construction, the heart of the Center Camp is its volunteers.

Department of Mutant Vehicles licenses motorized mobile works of creative expression otherwise known as Mutant Vehicles. DMV volunteers help assure that paperwork is in order and safety guidelines are met, as vehicles enter the event.

The Department of Public Work works hand in hand with Electrical, Fire, and Placement as the backbone of the city. DPW helps set up, maintain, and break down the infrastructure for the event. DPW helps electrical or fire if they need manpower, to keep things running and keep on top of fire suppression. If you don’t want to interrupt the festivities, there is a big need for people to come in early to help set up the infrastructure and stay after the event to help pack it away for next time.


Gate Team

Gate is often the first contact participants have with the Burner community. Gate volunteers check every vehicle entering for contraband, verify registrations, inspect vehicles.



The Greeters are the face of Saguaro Man and help form a newcomer’s first impressions. Greeters register dogs, introduce kids to rangers, review nudity and porta-potty etiquette, how to have fun rules, hand out Who What When Where guides and maps, and encouraging bell ringing and dirt angels. Education of the 10 principles is the biggest part of greeter duties.

The citizen cleanup effort begins the day Saguaro Man begins and doesn’t end until there is no trace of the event left behind. The Leave No Trace Department ensures that the land we use, won’t get used up. LNT crews meet in the afternoon to search out MOOP (Matter Out of Place) and encourage participants to do the same. Sunday shifts also help with restoration of the property.

The placement team helps people find their camps and helps Gate out with big vehicles, as they arrive.

If the Temple has a special place in your heart, join us and help hold the space so that others might experience the wonder that brings us back. Guardians keep watch for injuries and unsafe conditions, including fire, climbing, vehicle traffic, and problems with the structure. We do not make rules, nor are we enforcers; we watch quietly and act skillfully when necessary to protect the safety and sacred space of the Temple. We do require people to be sober during your shifts (3hrs); and we prefer that they dress as they would anywhere else on event (part of being invisible).

Contact each team lead to find out how you can be a part of the team.
