Plan A Field Trip

Visiting Chamizal National Memorial is a valuable opportunity to connect students to principles of environmental and cultural stewardship promoted by the National Park Service.

It's also a great way to learn about a key moment in local history that had international ramifications. But most importantly, a visit to Chamizal provides a unique, fun, memorable field trip! Plus, all our education programs are aligned to Texas state-education standards.

Another type of field trip opportunity are our scheduled theater outreach events. There are several performances scheduled for spring of 2015, but schools need to sign up soon. The deadline is December 19, 2014.
