Community “Design Charrette” Workshop

On Friday, April 15, SAGES’ will host a Community “Design Charrette” Workshop from 11:30 am – 12:40 pm at 200 S. Depot Street in Fox Lake. Everyone is welcome - SAGES’ students, families, Waupun Area School District, SAGES' Governance Board, and community members. 

**RSVP at **

During this event, public input and ideas are being sought related to how the schoolyard gets used for not only play and recreation, but also outdoor learning and exploration. Landscape architects from Ziegler Outdoor Creative (ZDA) will conduct three interactive learning stations allowing workshop participants to learn more about SAGES’ “Living Schoolyard” Master Plan, plus have the chance to provide feedback on features and utilization of the school grounds they’d like to see now and in the future.

The workshop/project is possible due to SAGES being awarded a $10,000 “General Environmental” grant from the Wisconsin Environmental Education Board (WEEB) to be used for Phase I of their “Breathing ‘Life’ into our Living Schoolyard” project. Phase I includes refining and implementation of a SAGES’ Sustainable Stormwater Management Plan. This plan will integrate stormwater into the schoolyard’s "Imaginative/Adventure" play areas and provide an Outdoor Classroom to discover, through hands-on activities, the effects of plants and infiltration basins on stormwater runoff.

Hope to see you at SAGES' on Friday, April 15th!
