    7:00pm - 10:00pm
    Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary

    Please join us as we use The Magic Planet to explore the various means of nighttime navigation.  After our presentation, you’ll have the opportunity to navigate your way to various checkpoints throughout our forests and prairies. And, by practicing stealth tactics such as “quiet talking” and “sneaky walking,” there’s no telling which of our nocturnal residents you may see or hear!  The exhibit hall will be open for those who prefer to remain indoors. Long-pants and closed-toed shoes highly recommended. Ages 18+

    $19/non-member; $16/Heard Museum Members*. Pre-registration is required. Click here to register. 

     

    *Please note that the reciprocal admission agreement (click here for guidelines) that the Heard has with Perot Museum, Fort Worth Museum of Nature & Science and ASTC Passport Program participants does not apply to education programs or special events.
