Dr. Jane told her life story and that of how her Roots and Shoots Program evolved from her original observational work. Some local educators were lucky enough to take part in a three day workshop with CBEEN (Columbia Basin Environmental Educators Network) to learn about this program and Dr Goodall was the special guest. Today she speaks to Grade 6 students from two school districts.
When asked if you would choose only one, which of her many books she would recommend she said, “In the Shadow of Man.” Lotus Books was present at the Key City lecture and has brought in all Jane Goodall’s books. The profit on these books will be split between the local environmental work of CBEEN and that of The Jane Goodall Instititute…..if there are any books remaining.
When asked what we can all do to preserve our planet, our only home, Dr. Goodall said that we must connect our hearts with our intelligence and all we need to do is think about the impact our actions, even the simplest ones, will have upon this earth and then act accordingly in the most appropriate way.
So Very Many Thanks to Duncan and all at CBEEN and their sponsors for making this event happen.
