About Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary
The Heard is a private 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and depends on volunteers, admissions, memberships, donations and grants to fulfill its mission to bring nature and people together. The Heard was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard when she was 80 years old. Throughout her life, she witnessed the expansion of the Metroplex and foresaw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, the Heard’s mission is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation.
