Sarah Coles is the Executive Director of the Texas Children in Nature Network. Sarah has been working within the informal education system for almost two decades. Sarah’s career has taken her from being in the classroom for two years, to moving informal education and working at various institutions across the country. While working at an institution focusing on EcoHistory (the study of how humans have adapted and influenced their environment), she found her passion for seeing students, children and families spend time in nature. She has worked in Texas in both the museum and nature center environments, starting her work with TCiNN as a regional leader in the Coastal Bend area. Sarah also serves on the board of the Informal Science Education Association of Texas.
