Jane visits Pierce Brosnan
While Jane was in California last week to accept the Minerva Award at Maria Shriver's Women's Conference, she took a few moments to catch up with an old friend. Pierce Brosnan, the actor and environmentalist who needs no introduction, has been Jane's friend and a JGI supporter for many years.
Jane's primary reason to be in California was to promote Jane Goodall's Roots & Shoots program. Jane spoke at Viewpoint School, and together with Pierce visited a water garden in Calabasas to learn about a restoration project near the Los Angeles River. Be sure to check out the Los Angeles Daily News article about the visit.

Pierce and Keely Shaye were recipients of a JGI leadership award last year. They were also kind supporters of the Jane Goodall Roots & Shoots California Day of Peace celebration in Santa Monica on September 20th.|
