The life-size animatronic dinosaurs for Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary's 9th annual exhibit, Dinosaurs Live!, were delivered today. The exhibit will open September 19th and is included in general admission.

Heard Natural Science Museum & Wildlife Sanctuary is a private 501(c)3 organization. The Heard was founded in 1967 by Bessie Heard, who was 80 years old when she saw the need to preserve a place where future generations could experience nature. Today, the Heard’s mission of bringing nature and people together is carried out through education, particularly of young people, which emphasizes an appreciation of nature and its conservation.

You may know that it’s best to plant milkweed from the closest sources possible, but did you know that planting tropical milkweed can actually be detrimental to the Monarch butterfly—for a couple of different reasons? Here’s some great information on what scientists are learning about this well-meant activity.

Fence lizard...not be confused with the horned lizard!
Eastern Fence Lizard, Sceloporus undulatus
http://nature-braun.blogspot.com/2015/05/eastern-fence-lizard.html

Sometimes confused for the horned lizard, the Eastern Fence Lizard belongs to a different genus. They can be found in forested areas, including backyards although always near a tree. Older females may lay up to four clutches a year with up to 16 eggs, but they do not receive any parental care after being laid. [More information at link above!]
