Skills and Arts for Girls of the Earth (S.A.G.E.)

Girls are explorers, leaders, adventure seekers, trailblazers, trackers, storytellers, fire makers, singers of songs and much more! Our S.A.G.E. program is designed to create a space for girls to develop these skills, practice their strengths and learn from each other in a peaceful, supportive atmosphere.

Through a variety of earth-living skills, they will explore, through the art of observation, the many wonders that the Pratt Nature Center provides. Meeting once a month after school, each session will have a focus that may include: hiking, fire and shelter building, plant and bird identification, map reading and orienteering, awareness and tracking, archery, outdoor adventuring as well as the arts and writing for creative expression. Sessions may also include guest speakers that will provide insight to new topics as well!

Girls are encouraged to bring their own ideas and interests. Reflection time, group discussion and meditation will also be included. Each participant will be actively involved in each session as they support one another’s strengths, challenge themselves, and strive to be the best version of who they are!

Our S.A.G.E. program is facilitated by long time friend of the Pratt Nature Center, Kaitlin Clark!

An avid lover of the outdoors and all things nature, Kaitlin brings a variety of knowledge and topics to explore. Art and nature has been a huge creative influence in her life and she is excited to share these gifts as well as the inner peace and calm that nature provides us all. Kaitlin has been an educator for 15 years in both public and private school systems as well as in local wellness centers and non-profits. She also holds a masters degree in Integrative Health and Wellness which led her to her passion of locally grown goodness and organic farming. She has led a variety of workshops, groups and classes in natural wellness, creative/visual and healing arts for children, teens and adults.

S.A.G.E. is open to middle  and high school (Grade 6-12) girls and meets once per month.  This program is free but donations are appreciated.
