What’s in a Year?

January 24, 2020


“In nature, every moment is new; the past is always swallowed and forgotten…” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Most people fear change; it can make us feel nervous, uncertain, and uncomfortable. For nature, change is normal and necessary! Join us for a discussion relating to the natural changes that may occur within a year.

Tools of the Trade

February 21, 2020


You may think that Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, but fireflies were illuminating the sky long before then! For thousands of years, animals have possessed all kinds of “tools” that we humans have come to duplicate. From pliers and spears to heat-seeking missiles and airport sniffers, this month’s program will give you an up-close and hands-on perspective of nature’s toolbox!

Keystone Species

March 13, 2020


The Keystone State got its nickname due to being the middle of the 13 original colonies that became the United States and has played a key role in the economic, political and social development of the nation. A plant or animal can similarly be the key to the health and development of whole ecosystems. Come learn about how some special species hold nature together, including examples from right here in the Keystone State.

Earth Day

April 24, 2020


Save the Earth, we only have one! Does the Earth really need saving? Maybe it needs saving….from us. Learn better practices of reduce, reuse, and recycle at this month’s SAGE talk. Obtain new ways of living that will better our environment. A little change to our daily lives will make a big impact to our world. We are all in this together.

Down and Dirty: What is Soil?

May 15, 2020


Parents usually call it dirt. Gardeners refer to it as soil. But, what is it, really? Marvelous mud or mundane muck? In this program, we will get down to the nitty-gritty, our noses (nearly) to the ground. Using microscopes, photos, and channeling a particular cooking show, Naturalist Mark Fallon will stir up some answers on the mysteries of soil.

SAGE Sessions will continue in September!
