Read fine print!! I thought I had a year before it expired but I only had 3 months to do several things to get my year membership!!! I did not do those and therefore cannot use the groupon I paid for.

Great place for run, walking, or just exploring with the kids. Make sure your kids use the restroom before you go on the trails!

Strollers are a bit difficult but if you can manage its totally worth it Especially if you have a little one that loves dinosaurs

There was more to do than expected I thought we'd stay for two hours and stayed close to four The dinosaurs are neat but could be a little scary to little ones They are animated, and the sounds could be a little frightening The trails are neat They range from 1/2 to 1-1/2 miles On display, they have rocks, shells, birds' nests, dioramas of biomes, and live reptiles Outside, they have live animals, a butterfly garden (butterflies not present during colder months), and little pioneer houses The facilities are not fancy, but it's a beautiful place Great for exploring! I recommend for all ages, but elementary and middle school will really enjoy

From Our Editors

Bessie Heard dedicated years of her life to philanthropic efforts throughout the McKinney area, helping plant hackberry trees along downtown streets and establishing an American Red Cross chapter during World War I. However, she accomplished her greatest feat in 1967 when the Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary opened to the public. With 289 acres of rolling space, the sanctuary functions as a testament to the diversity of local flora and fauna, educating visitors and urging them to protect those species for future generations.

More than 6.5 miles of unpaved hiking trails wind throughout the sanctuary, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in habitats that range from tall-grass prairie to limestone slopes. The grounds shelter more than 150 varieties of wildflowers and plants, as well as more than 240 species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians. In addition to the trails, the sanctuary also features an extensive garden of native trees, grasses, and perennials, as well as a treetop ropes course (reservation required; additional fees apply). Indoors, interactive exhibits and collections impart valuable information on north-Texan geology, marine life, and venomous snakes.
