The Sierra State Parks Foundation is requesting funds to sustain a certified interpreter to provide virtual programming at the Lake Tahoe California State Parks for 2023. Program topics include Lake Tahoe Clarity, Trees of Tahoe, Climate Change Effects at Lake Tahoe, and Snow Science. State funds are not available to provide this critical educational position and continuation is dependent on the generosity of private donors. Sponsor a class session ($200) or an entire school ($1,000)!
This objective will be accomplished in partnership with the California State Parks innovative Online Resources for Teachers and Students (PORTS) virtual program delivery. PORTS provides K-12 students the opportunity to connect with the diverse cultural, natural, and historic resources of our State through free virtual field-trip experiences. State Parks provide the in-kind donation of technical support and training. Our funding request is for the staff for program implementation.
