LuAnn Thompson to Speak at the Botany Society Public Lecture

Join the Botany Society for their monthly lecture presented by LuAnn Thompson. LuAnn has been doing outreach from Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to classrooms statewide. She has beamed her live programs for 10 years using a green screen in the studio and a vehicle equipped with a satellite feed that allows her to broadcast from remote areas of the Park.

LuAnn is the on-camera teacher for the Parks Online Resources for Teachers and Students (PORTS) Program. She brings a Masters degree in Biology and 20 years of science teaching experience to the program.  LuAnn will share how the program works with classes and some of the many fun interactions that happen as she connects kids to California State Parks.  This lecture is open to the public and meets in the Discovery Lab at the Visitor Center.
