One day field trip to Tzu Chi National Headquarters campus in San Dimas
Every year, the Tzu Chi Education Foundation staff invites Ekstrand Elementary to a field trip to Tzu Chi National Headquarters campus in San Dimas, California. At the campus, the students and school staff learn about environmental protection through hands-on activities. The students are taught to find innovative ways to give things a second life and learn how to separate different types of recyclables. In 2012, inspired by Tzu Chi’s green initiatives, the whole school started recycling plastic bottles in their classrooms.
