Have Your Students Discovered the Wonder of God’s Creation? 

In creation, God has given man an intricate and beautiful gift that deserves to be explored and appreciated. Prairie Star Ranch is offering an exciting new program centered on a Catholic approach to Environmental Education for youth in and around the Archdiocese. Drawing from the teachings of our recent Holy Fathers, Sacred Scripture, as well as educational standards, the new Environmental Stewardship Program aims to provide students with a hands-on, Christocentric outdoor classroom. 

Designed for 4th – 8th grade students, we can accommodate groups as large as 50 students. Please contact us if you are interested in bringing a larger group. Interested in finding out more about this unique opportunity for your students by reading the Leaven’s coverage of this exciting new program for Catholic schools.
