The goal of Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary is to connect kids with nature – with the hope to inspire within them, as well as their parents, families and teachers, a deeper appreciation for the environment.

The Heard’s education department offers innovative programs designed for all age groups, interest and abilities. Programs include guided nature trails, live animal presentations, a preschool program, homeschool science classes, summer camps, adult and teacher workshops.

Laboratory workshops, scout days and merit badge classes are available by reservation from September through May.
