Heard Natural Science Museum and Wildlife Sanctuary



The Heard Natural Science Museum is the result of one woman's vision for the future and her commitment to the community. Miss Bess Heard was a renaissance woman who devoted most of her lifetime (1886-1988) to the city of McKinney and its people. Her greatest contribution is The Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary.  

We use a three-pronged approach of education, conservation, and preservation to accomplish our mission of bringing nature and people together to discover, enjoy, and experience our priceless environment.
