How It’s Done at Big Trees

Thanks to funding from Calaveras Big Trees Association, Lillie Oravetz was hired in the fall of 2021 as a permanent intermittent state park interpreter to both run the PORTS program during the school year and do summer in-person programs for the park.

Our goal is to raise $40,000 for the PORTS Program to continue.

Anyone, anywhere can make a difference.

If giving of your time is a better option for you, please contact Amber Sprock at 209-795-7980
