The new passPORTS project from PORTS (Parks Online Resources for Teachers and Students)® Program in partnership with CUE and Parks California, is working with educators from around the state to re-imagine the school field trip. We have a grant opportunity for you to create a blended field trip to learn about the environmental, scientific, cultural, and historic richness of California!
What’s a Blended Field Trip?
passPORTS has re-imagined the traditional field trip to “blend” virtual and in-person access to selected California State Parks. First, you and your students participate in a “virtual” video conference visit with a CA State Park Interpreter. Next, at a future date, you take an in-person field trip to the park.

“I’m #stoked on the passPORTS program, and I can’t wait to share it with my students!” September 25th, 17 teachers met with PORTS at Refugio State Beach with the mission to build deep and meaningful learning experiences for students.
