Parks Online Resources for Teachers and Students (PORTS)
Beth Chaton, Coordinator, After School Programs/Redwood Edventures
PORTS allows rangers to look directly into the eyes of children and engage them in conversation as the students sit in their classrooms and study science, history, language arts and other academic content standards. This program allows students access to park experts regardless of their geographic location or economic status. Never before in the history of public education has such a diverse array of students had such equal access to the vast and inspiring resources of the California State Parks.
