WASHINGTON, D.C. (KVEO NEWS CENTER 23) — Congressman Vela announced that the Palo Alto Battlefield National Historical Park will be receiving a grant from the National Park Foundation.
Palo Alto Battlefield was granted $8,000 as part of the Ticket to Ride program from the National Park Foundation.
The Ticket to Ride program, supported by a $500,000 grant from Disney WorldWide Conservation Fund, helps students explore the outdoors by offering transportation to national parks.
The grant will enable students from the Brownsville I.S.D. to visit the park, engage in park resources and insight on how they envision the park.
