This popular and free virtual program, offered by California State Parks in partnership with Save the Redwoods League, has been attended by people in 12 countries and 38 U.S. states. Here’s a look at the program in April, when 1,526 students participated, including an actual field trip provided by a grant from the League for the Fifth Grade Buses to Big Trees program.
