Shepherds Fest 2020

Each Fall Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center typically hosts Shepherds Fest, an annual Fall open house. Since we are unable to hold the event in person this year, we thought we would host the event “virtually”. We will be doing this via a series of videos on and about Shepherd’s Corner!

Today is the kick off of our virtual Shepherds Fest week! We invite you to enjoy this introductory video about Shepherd’s Corner Ecology Center.

Keep an eye on our Facebook and website because new videos will be released each day this week.
