What is "blended Access"?
Blended-access field trips are multi-touch opportunities to engage with California State Parks through both virtual and in-person engagement.
In advance of an in-person field trip to the park, we prepare students using available digital resources from PORTS. PORTS programs elevate students' prior knowledge in advance of their visit and support them to build relationships with the people, places, and stories that make up our parks.
Grant funding is full for Fall Semester!
Please stay tuned for Spring Semester funding.
The PassPORTS project increases equitable and sustainable access to California State Parks for K-12 communities through "blended access" opportunities, new curated instructional resources, and professional development opportunities. With the support of CUE, Parks California, and K-12 educators like you, we served over 5,000 students in the 2021-22 school year with PassPORTS!
As a part of this project, we have provided grant funding for educators to create a blended field trip to learn about the environmental, scientific, cultural, and historic richness of California!
