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. 2015-2016 is the 13th 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.

It's Planting Time for You!
Join us at Manor Farm for a sensory, hands-on approach to learning simple planting skills. Have fun preparing garden beds and flower pots, tilling soil, planting flowers, planting herbs and watering. Observe your gardens through the weeks. Discover easy gardening skills and become lifelong advocates for our environment!
Play, Exercise & Explore your Physical Surroundings
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.
