MUSEUM RECEIVES PRESTIGIOUS AWARD

Released on August 15, 2002

The Royal Saskatchewan Museum (RSM) has received a prestigious award for

its work in environmental education.



The first-ever Canadian Network for Environmental Education and

Communication (EECOM) award in environmental education for government

institutions honours the RSM's Life Sciences Gallery for its important

contribution to improving Canadians' knowledge and understanding of our

environment.



"The RSM's role as a tourist attraction for families and visitors to

Saskatchewan is well known," Culture, Youth and Recreation Minister Joanne

Crofford said. "This award highlights the museum's equally important role

to educate the public and students about natural history in a memorable and

innovative way."



The Life Sciences Gallery opened in June 2001, taking the exhibits and

programming potential of the RSM to new levels. The gallery contains more

than 1,250 square metres of permanent exhibits, each one describing how

different forms of life interconect with each other.



Visitors travel through 16 different exhibit areas, including six

interactive computer-based learning centres that examine adjacent displays

and provide information from elementary school to university levels.



"The Royal Saskatchewan Museum is continually striving for - and achieving -

innovative and educational exhibits and programming," Crofford said.



The RSM attracts about 140,000 visitors annually, including 20,000 children

who visit as part of school programs. The government fully funds the RSM

as part of its commitment to give the people of Saskatchewan an

appreciation and understanding of our natural and cultural heritage.
