Just as big cities never truly sleep, neither do the Texas woods and prairies. As dusk descends, coyotes prowl and howl, armadillos and raccoons loudly rustle through the underbrush and vociferous owls continuously ask that rhetorical question, "Who?" Experience the wildlife after hours on a night hike at Heard Natural Science Museum, 1 Nature Place in McKinney, beginning at 6 p.m. on Saturday. (The Heard suggests you bring a flashlight with a red lens to protect your night vision.) Cost is $10 for members, $12 for non-members, and registration is required. Call 972-562-5566 ext. 237 or visit heardmuseum.org.
