Our Mission

To ignite curiosity and respect for our natural world through accessible, interactive and educational programs.

Nature Facts

Frogs, toads, newts, and Salamanders are amphibians, meaning they have an aquatic gill-breathing larval stage, followed by a terrestrial lung-breathing adult stage, but some amphibians stay in an aquatic habitat and keep their gills as an adult such as the Axolotl!

Many trees along our trails are labeled with their names! Both scientific and common!

Heartland Forest is home to Both Barn swallows and tree swallows! If you see a bird with blue back and a white throat that’s a tree swallow! If the bird has a blue back with a red throat that a barn swallow!

The Muskrat is a semi aquatic rodent that lives in wetlands! We have some living at Heartland Forest, they can be seen at the fishpond, and can swim underwater for roughly 15 minutes on average!
