The School-Age Green Educators (SAGE) committee connects educators and others who work with school age children (K-12). We provide networking opportunities and access to green resources and specialists in our area across a variety of learning domains. Through networking and professional development activities, SAGE provides opportunities for individuals and organizations to learn from each other, as well as from experts in outdoor and environmental education.
SAGE offers regular Meet-ups at schools, gathering places and field trip locations. Here is the schedule for Fall 2017:
