guadalupe mountain national park

For over 10,000 years, the

Guadalupes Mountains have

witnessed a constant stream

of human history, including

bloody conflicts between

Mescalero Apaches and

Buffalo Soldiers, the passing

of the Butterfield Overland

Mail, the coming of ranchers

and settlers, and finally, the

making of a national park.

Today, the history is

preserved at the Frijole and

Williams Ranches, and at the

ruins of the Pinery Station.

Learn about the park's colorful history, study its unique fossils, and take a close look at its native plants and numerous animal inhabitants. Other activities, such as attending a ranger program, taking a hike, or visiting the stage ruins, may substitute for an activity in the workbook.
