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. 2014-2015 is the 12th 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.

Long Island Naturally, our environmental fair is September 26, 2015.
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.

“Change is Our Choice: Creating Climate Solutions” Discussion Course
Starflower Experiences will be hosting this discussion course created by the Northwest Earth Institute (www.nwei.org). The Northwest Earth Institute believes that “individuals, motivated by their renewed recognition of Earth-centered values, are the true facilitators of change. Only through action by committed individuals will a sustainable future be brought to fruition.” The science has long been settled: climate change is real and it’s happening all around us right now. This new five-session discussion course on climate action will help you take action to increase resilience and mitigate the impacts of climate change. Presented in an interactive ebook, this new discussion course experience integrates video, audio and printed content with action plans that help you roll your sleeves up and get started taking action toward a better tomorrow. Five Mondays from 7-9 pm at Manor Farm starting June 8. Order your ebook: See more and order your e-book at http://www.nwei.org/discussion-course-books/climate/
