Welcome to the Education Program

You and your students are invited to participate in the ranger-led programs available at the park and in the classroom. Our program incorporates interpretive themes with the curriculum requirements of local Texas schools. Special emphasis is placed on the geology, ecology, and archeology of the Amistad area. While doing hands-on exploring through discovery activities, students are highly engaged in learning.

In the ranger-led education programs, students will learn the importance of Amistad National Recreation Area and its cultural and natural resources.
