Rangers of the EarthTM
Starflower Experiences was lucky to be a pilot site for The Institute for Earth Education's Rangers of the Earth program. This is the 14th year at the Martin Luther King Jr School in Wyandanch.
This powerful program takes a whole year to complete, yet requires only 2 full days at an outdoor site plus opportunities for youngsters to explore natural places in their own community.

Next Community Yard Sale is October 14.
Community Yard Sale--October 14, 2017
We'll be holding a Community Yard Sale at Manor Farm on Saturday October 14 from 10 am to 4 pm. For a donation of $20 you can have a 10'x10' space to sell your unwanted stuff. If you love garage/yard sales, this is for you! Space reservation flyer will be posted here soon.
Youngsters who follow Nature's Way will begin their expedition each day at our headquarters at Manor Farm where they will be involved in games and challenges to better understand their natural neighbors. Then they'll set off along "Nature's Way" in the
woodlands of the adjacent Berkeley Jackson County Park where they'll have the chance to practice and apply their new understandings
as well as learn to appreciate the natural beauty of this area. Finally, participants will come to see how they can help the plants and animals that live together and depend on each other in natural communities.
