The Heard has a wonderful butterfly house/garden that is only open during the summer months that showcases some of the native butterflies including swallowtails and monarchs. Outside the butterfly house is the butterfly garden that includes native plants popular with the butterflies but are also very drought resistant. You will be amazed at how beautiful a garden can be with little water and care and still attract butterflies and other insects. If you happen to come out on a Saturday morning you may even find me volunteering in the butterfly house sharing information on the butterflies and plants. There are also miles of trails through the preserve and a small museum that fun to do on an afternoon as well. It is great place to learn about the local habitat.
Special bonus for 2013 - if it is over 100 degrees as forcasted by local NBC you can get a huge discount if you bring a printed copy from their website for the current day. See official details on the Heard Website.
