Elizabeth Learning Center Habitat Gardens
George Nanoski

Starting on Earth Day 2006, high school science teacher George Nanoski created three Habitat Gardens (Chaparral/Sage Scrub, Mojave/Sonoran Desert and Vernal Pools) with his students, their parents and school administration at Elizabeth Learning Center in Cudahy. They serve as outdoor ecological laboratories for his classes. They attract wildlife, allow for the observation of symbiotic interactions and educate the students, staff, and community about the rich biological diversity of California. They also serve as areas to protect threatened and endangered species. Such species highlight the negative anthropogenic consequences of climate change, resource exploitation and urban expansion. What began as a typical Earth Day project, has over time, evolved into so much more!
Come hear more about this amazing story and habitat in the heart of Los Angeles.
