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 school year is the 18th 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 Repair Café will be Saturday April 30 at the Sayville Library. Mark your calendar. Save your broken stuff.
We always need more repair coaches--if you're good at fixing things, please let us know. We need someone who can work on jewelry. We are looking for people who can 'heal' stuffed animals or fix clothing. We'd love to have someone do on-site lessons on sewing on a button or darning socks or other simple DIY stuff. Are you a mental health professional who'd like to help "fix" people and can be a good listener for people who need to just talk? Are you good with computers? Good with fixing electronic stuff? Good at repairing furniture or miscellaneous items?
Can you help?
