Walk on Team Heard as we work to show the nation that DFW can boast the most species of wildlife as part of the City Nature Challenge! We’ll have “coaches” on hand to help you learn how to score points for the Metroplex as you ID species of wildlife on the Heard’s 289-acre sanctuary. You will only need to show up with a smart phone with the iNaturalist app and your love of nature. AT 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m., you'll also have an opportunity to go on a nature walk at 1:30 pm and 3pm with Melanie Schuchart, Heard entomology volunteer and Master Naturalist, to look for butterflies and other insects.
This event is included in seasonal general admission and free for Heard Museum members.
About Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary
Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary is a private 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing nature and people together to discover, enjoy, experience, restore and preserve our priceless environment. The Heard was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard at the age of 80. In a time when the rate of expansion of the Metroplex was slower than today, she foresaw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, the Heard's mission of bringing nature and people together is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation.
