Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary’s mission of bringing people and nature together has been made possible since 1967 through successful partnerships and collaborative efforts with businesses ranging from national corporations to local businesses. The Heard, a private 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, creates unique partnerships that leverage the individual strengths of our business partners.

In turn, The Heard supports companies that aim to strengthen their commitment to their community, social responsibility, and business objectives. Partnerships may be brief or lengthy in duration and may include either customary support opportunities or unique methods, depending on the individual needs of each business.

Benefit options include
  • Recognition and logo in various avenues such as print, billboard, radio, PR, website, social media and Heard newsletter
  • Opportunities for banners and signage at events and/or exhibits
  • Opportunities for education/community events at sponsor's location
  • Opportunities to interact with community
  • Free memberships, admission tickets and much more
