On June 11th, Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary invites the public to put on a cowboy hat and mosey on over to the Texas Heritage Festival! From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. guests are invited to celebrate all that makes the Lone Star State so spectacular.
Presented by Clif KiD and sponsored by McKinney Community Development Corporation and Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – McKinney, the Texas Heritage Festival will feature toe-tappin’, knee-slappin’ Western music, local artisans, historical demonstrations, and interactive children’s activities. Guests can rustle up some tasty Texas grub, say “Howdy” to our resident wildlife ambassadors, and explore the Native Texas Butterfly Garden.
Children will love exploring the Heard’s Pioneer Village, comprised of eight pint-sized buildings typical of prairie settlements in the late 1800s—such as a school house, general store, and settlers' cabins!
Event tickets also include general admission to Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary for the day of the event and free parking. Tickets are just $10 for adults, $7 for seniors 60+ and children ages 3 through 12. Admission is free for Heard Museum Members, children ages 2 and under, and McKinney* Residents.
*McKinney Resident Free Admission is available for up to 4 persons per McKinney address. Residency must be shown through a water bill listing a McKinney address and a valid photo ID or driver's license with matching name.
About Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary
Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard. Miss Heard was 80 years old when she saw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, this private 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is dedicated to bringing nature and people together. This mission is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation. For more information, visit heardmuseum.org.
