Access to California State Parks for your students is just a CLICK away!
Parks Online Resources for Teachers and Students (PORTS) program provides FREE live interactive videoconference programs, also known as virtual field trips. K-12 students from California and around the world are connecting with live State Park Interpreters and learning academic content standards within the context of California’s dynamic state park system.
The primary focus of PORTS are students that have experienced geographic and socio-economic barriers to participate in state park programs, or in current situations like those presented by COVID-19. By reaching directly into "remote" classrooms now, students are able to interact directly with park professionals and access their California State Parks in a way not always possible due to current restrictions and limited access.
