A Fun, Festive and Family-Friendly Fundraising Event Benefiting Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary

Holidays at the Heard brings the beauty of the holiday season into nature. Bundle up and experience the most unique holiday event in North Texas! Guests will see lights and holiday décor along a half mile Heard nature trail. In keeping with the Heard’s role as a nature preserve, this light display is designed to enhance, rather than overpower, the sanctuary’s natural beauty.

Children and the young at heart will enjoy the opportunity to take a photo with Father Christmas and Mother Nature in a festive setting. Family-friendly entertainment will complement the holiday atmosphere.

More information coming soon!
Please note: the animatronic dinosaurs will not be animated during the event.
