Paige Sanford

Virginia Watershed Environmental Education Program Manager

CBF Educator Paige Sanford. Tenure at CBF: March 2012-present

Education: Washington College, Bachelor's degree in Anthropology.

Prior Experience:  Paige has been working with our island team since 2012 honing her experiential education skills at all four of our island education centers. Her introduction to education, CBF style, began with a seasonal educator position at Fox Island and most recently, she has served as Senior Manager of all four Island Programs. In between, she enjoyed working at Smith Island and Port Isobel where she facilitated lessons on history, culture, and issues of the local bay fishing communities of Tangier, Virginia and Tylerton, Maryland, and at the Karen Noonan Environmental Education Program near the Blackwater WIldlife Refuge on Maryland's Eastern Shore.

Her biggest priorities are providing meaningful watershed experiences for students, student leaders, and teachers that are not only safe but also rich and relevant to her audience.

Paige hails from Charlottesville, Virginia and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology with a minor in Art History from Washington College. She participated in the Chesapeake Bay Regional Studies Program, an interdisciplinary study of the Chesapeake Bay with a focus on history, ecology, and culture of the watershed.

Paige has always loved the outdoors, especially spending time on the bay, and traveling.
