PORTS Home Learning Programs

Parents: You’ve become homeschool teachers overnight.
Teachers: You’re keeping your students engaged – through a screen.

That’s more than either of you expected without warning or preparation. You are probably settling into new routines and wondering how to keep things engaging, fresh and fun for your students.

California State Parks are here to help with live, interactive conversations with a park educator located in a beautiful state park.

You can support your children’s education (and your peace of mind) through the PORTS home learning programs. These virtual experiences for students from kindergarten to 12th grade – and the best part, they are free!! Come visit and learn about the cultural heritage, natural features and wildlife of our state’s 280 parks from the comfort of your own home.

Give PORTS a try.

Best of all, give yourself a breather as these virtual experiences can fit right into your own lesson plans.
