LIFE SCIENCES GALLERY OPENS JULY 1ST

Released on June 26, 2000

Sixteen new diorama exhibits illustrating the major eco-regions of Saskatchewan

will open on Canada Day at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.



Phase one of the new Life Sciences Gallery includes exhibits of many

Saskatchewan animals: from cougars to butterflies and cactus to water lilies.

Exhibits reveal what it's like inside a bear's den, a beaver's lodge or a

snake's hibernation cave.



Computer workstations with graphics and on-line reference information about the

plants and animals in the exhibits are available at five Interactive Learning

Centres located throughout the gallery.



"The Life Sciences Gallery is designed to broaden the visitor's understanding

of life processes and the relationship of living things to each other and the

physical environment," Regina Sherwood MLA Lindy Kasperski said on behalf of

Municipal Affairs, Culture and Housing Minister Clay Serby. "The Interactive

Learning Centres will assist students from elementary to university level to

investigate a variety of natural history topics. This material can be accessed

from the museum and will in future be available on the museum's web site."



The entire gallery will be open in 2001. The emphasis of the last section will

be on our global environment including displays on the Costa Rican rain forest,

Canada's MacKenzie Delta and human environmental issues.
