Summer at The Heard Natural Science Museum

Summer at the Heard Natural Science Museum offers time to reconnect with nature. Less than 10 miles from downtown McKinney and only 30 miles from the heart of Dallas, The Heard
is the perfect location for a day-trip or “staycation.” The Heard has picnic facilities, 289 acres featuring five eco-systems with miles of trails, a variety of education programs, exhibits, and more!

Denizens of Darkness

Through September 11, 2011

Are you afraid of the dark? Most humans are. Learn about bats and other creatures that are active at night–their purpose, their habitat and how they live their day at night. Study the moon phases and explore how our human limitations feed our imaginations. Muster the courage to look in your closet. Discover why there is nothing to fear.
