THEME: BIRD STUDY IN THE 21ST CENTURY
DISCOVER THE BEAUTY OF THE EARTH
NATURE -- Nature is at its finest out on Star Island. Whether you are sedentary, active, young or old, there are beautiful skies, sunrises, sunsets, flora, geology, birdlife and ocean water for all to appreciate.
EDUCATION -- Natural History Week at Star Island (June 21-28, 2014) is a week-long family retreat enjoyed by people who share a common interest in natural history. Each year, we present a different conference theme pertaining to natural history. Our theme this year is 'BIRD STUDY IN THE 21ST CENTURY" and we are pleased to announce that our guest speaker will be Eric Masterson, noted author, guide and lecturer. Eric will conduct daily seminars on the several hundred eastern birds that visit the Isles of Shoals, with a focus on the forces of change, including climate, habitat and food distribution.
SPIRITUAL RENEWAL -- Everyone deserves some down time, away from the stresses of everyday living on the mainland. At Star, you are invited to relax on porch chairs, read a book, write your first novel, knit a sweater, listen to music, meditate, reflect and be inspired by interesting conversations and presentations by our conferees. Each day at Star will be a gift you give to yourself. Our minister of the week is Rev. Judith A. Davis, PhD, rector of Christ Church Episcopal in Harwich Port, MA.
