Trails and Rails Program
Conducted on the Amtrak Heartland Flyer in coordination with Chickasaw National Recreation Area.
"Trails & Rails" is a partnership between the National Park Service and Amtrak to provide on-board education programs. Volunteers will act as tour guides and provide Amtrak passengers with information while aboard the Heartland Flyer.
During their train ride, passengers will be introduced to the rich and diverse cultural heritage of Oklahoma and Texas; the history of the area; the geological story of these areas; descriptions of the Oklahoma and Texas landscape and its animals and plants; the economic story; and the role of the railroad in the areas.
The Trails and Rails program is over for 2011. Please contact us to find out about the 2012 dates.
