Take a Tour

On March 20, ECHS hosted Dr. Jane Goodall for a rare opportunity for students from ten local schools to interact, listen to and present their environmental projects in partnership with
Roots & Shoots, TreePeople, Generation Earth and the Jane Goodall Institute.

Dr. Goodall and her famous stuffed Gorilla, Mr. H, met with students and planted an Arbutus 'Marina' aka Strawberry Tree. ECHS 12th grade student Ogechi Hubert named the tree "Chi," meaning "Spiritual Being" in the Nigerian Igbo language.
ECS Students presented their environmental projects to Dr. Goodall, which included mapping toxic release in Los Angeles and researching alternative energy. Dr. Goodall then shared with the audience her story of never giving up on her dreams and shared how she finds hope in these complex times.  

"It's amazing that no matter what anyone said, Dr. Goodall never gave up. She helped me see how I myself can change the world with my spirit and my dreams." - Jessica Soto, ECMS-Gardena 6th grader
