There is no cost for educational programs. Because demand for these activities is high, all field trips must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. All programs are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Field trips are designed to accommodate up to 100 students and generally take 1 to 1 ½ hours to complete. These programs can be modified to fit into shorter time frames. Most field trip activities are outdoors and dependent on weather conditions. Completing the pre-visit materials
will make for a more enjoyable and engaging experience. For more information or to schedule a program, please contact Karen Weaver
at (956) 541-2785, ext. 332.
A self-guided program is a great way for school groups to explore the park. This is a good option for groups who are short on time or who wish to view the site at their own pace. While no reservations are required to take a self-guided tour of the site, we do ask that you call in advance to inform us of your visit. Trail maps are available at the Visitor Center desk.
Field Trip Like No Other
Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park continues to develop its facilities and increase program offerings. The park encourages school and educators to experience programs at the park's visitor center, exhibit area, and on the battlefield. With the recent acquisition and development of the Resaca de la Palma Battlefield site, opportunities at both venues will increase.
