Representatives from all member schools are invited to attend the annual Oregon Green Schools Summit where participants celebrate successes, gain new skills, generate enthusiasm and share ideas. The location of the annual summit changes from year to year.

The Board of Directors generally meets on the fourth Thursday of the month from 10:00 a.m. until noon in Wilsonville.
