Roots of plants are strong and can even shoot through concrete to make cracks in the sidewalks.
Join our Roots & Shoots class to find out how young people today are taking action to make a difference in their world. By studying the life of Dr. Jane Goodall, you will discover what she is doing globally to help animals, people, and the environment. You, too, can learn how to make a difference by taking just one small step in joining our course!
We’ll have fun creating an action plan to help part of your local (or global) community! Your project can involve animals, people, and/or the environment.
If you love our planet, the environment, people, and animals, this course is for you!
For fun, watch this early Roots & Shoots promotional video, featuring Dr. Monita (seen around 2:50) and her students!
