On Tuesday November 29, 2022, you will have the opportunity to make a difference.  This year you will have the opportunity to ensure that students from far and near have an unforgettable virtual experience of Calaveras Big Trees.  Your donations will be supporting the Calaveras Big Trees PORTS Program (PARKS ONLINE RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS)

“Ports uses the power of video-conferencing to support K-12 educators in designing deep and meaningful learning experiences in virtual and in person classrooms.” (Lillie Oravetz) 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. #GivingTuesday is a day dedicated to generosity and giving. It’s a day to acknowledge the power of giving and simple acts of kindness. Anyone, anywhere can make a difference.
