Seacliff Beach made front page news on the Santa Cruz Sentinel today, with a piece featuring a virtual classroom which is beamed to thousands of California students in grades K through 12 throughout the state. Local Aptos resident Vonnie Lemke was featured in the article, who is an interpreter for the Parks Online Resources for Teachers and Students Program (PORTS). The PORTS program is a distance learning educational program run by the State of California, but the program is funded by grants and contributions from the nonprofit Friends of Santa Cruz State Parks. Last week, the Seacliff program was one of six programs in the state honored with the Excellence in Museum award.
