The Mission Of The Heard Wildlife Sanctuary Is Threefold:

1) provide the best possible habitat for native and endemic wildlife species;
2) train future land stewards and naturalists through habitat restoration and wildlife management; and
3) preserve functional examples of pre-settlement Collin County ecosystems. In part, the sanctuary exists to restore human connection to the land.
