A new, free Save the Redwoods League program is introducing K-12 students from around the world to the magic of giant sequoia using live, interactive videoconferencing. The Parks Online Resources for Teachers & Students (PORTS) virtually transports children to Calaveras Big Trees State Park in the Sierra Nevada to learn about the world’s largest tree species. Since the program’s launch last October, more than 8,000 students have participated in digital field trips to Calaveras with Park Interpretive Specialist Jenny Comperda. Here’s a look at the program in March, when 1,160 students participated. Teachers, sign up your classroom today.
