Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary, a private, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization has agreements (with certain guidelines that are outlined below) with a select number of organizations regarding granting members of these other organizations with reciprocal admission and vice versa. The Heard receives no compensation for granting this courtesy to other organization’s memberships and vice versa.

These agreements are only applicable to general admission and only apply to those following the guidelines of the agreements. None of these agreements provide additional member benefits including education programs (such as field trips) and special events.

Please note: because the Heard does not receive regular tax funding, improvements to our facility and the preservation of our wildlife sanctuary are made possible with the support of individuals like you through donations, admissions and volunteering. As a result, we ask that you use these agreements courteously and in the spirit in which they are intended. Thank you for your cooperation!
