Zusammenfassung

Der Philanthrop Charles M. Goethe war ein Naturliebhaber aus Sacramento, wo sich mein Forschungslabor befindet. Die Umweltschützer von heute, insbesondere hier in Nordkalifornien, könnten von Goethes Vision zunächst einmal fasziniert sein. Er war ein Naturschützer, der den Erdboden und Bäume liebte und sich auch für Pädagogik interessierte. Er gründete sogar die Sacramento State University.
