This comprehensive nature preserve offers a museum and small zoo along with a wide variety of trails through wetlands, prairies, and forests, where educational markers identify plants and encourage conservation. A great resource for learning more about Texas ecosystems, the Heard provides many guided hikes and interactive exhibits. This trail includes the Heard’s Animals of the World Zoo as it winds through a grassy prairie into a wooded wetland and, eventually, onto a boardwalk overlooking a pond where turtles sun themselves on rocks and ducks dive for fish.
