Summer Nights At Forest Hills Nature Area

Let's Get Buggy July 21st Registration Now Open!

We are excited to invite our Shepherd families to a fun night of learning all about the world of invertebrates. This special night has a limited number of students that can attend. We are opening up this night to the first 40 Shepherd/Winn Elementary students. Each student will receive projects they worked on that night to take home with them. Each student will be expected to have one chaperone with them during the event.


This event is all about Invertebrates. We will get to play with bugs and go pond dipping to see up close what an invertebrate looks like! We will have an expert talking about spiders too! Don't forget to bring a cloth recyclable bag for the goodies you get to take home!


Call some other Shepherd school friends and come together. It will be a night you won't want to miss!


If for some reason, you sign up for the session and your plans change, please call the office. We will be keeping a waiting list to add kids if we can.


You must fill out ONE form per Shepherd Public Schools Tk-5th grade student.


We are so excited to offer this new learning adventure with our families this summer! We can't wait to see you at "Buggy Fun" on July 21st from 6:00-7:00pm.


Our last summer family night will be on August 4th. The theme is learning about plants.
