Video Transcripts

California State Parks is proud to feature a number of videos shown in our parks, many of which have been produced especially for California's state parks. In order to help teachers better prepare for a visit to a park, below are links to transcripts for many of these videos. The videos are listed alphabetically by park name and then by title.

We have a limited number of videos available on our website, and we hope to add to this list in the future. We also plan to provide annotations for the videos here, and identify which California State Content Standards may be met by using each video. If you have any suggestions related to this (such as your thoughts concerning content standards for each video) please feel free to contact us at interp@parks.ca.gov.
