Profile Last Updated: May 13, 2009
Wild Alberta is the Provincial Museum of Alberta’s newest permanent gallery, and it is a valiant attempt to make an exhibit on the province’s natural history far more interactive and educational than the previous Habitat Gallery. The new gallery encourages visitors to discover the various ecosystem that exist in the province by changing their perspectives; the organizers hope that the new interactive exhibits will have gallery-goers seeing the environment through the eyes of the various animals that live in the province.
Sight and touch
Opened with the cooperation of the Federation of Alberta Naturalists, the Wild Alberta gallery will open your eyes to the world around us. The exhibit includes a blow-up of a drop of pond water to show the 26 different microscopic organisms that can survive in that small amount of H20. The gallery also sponsors regular session with naturalists at its field stations (usually one weekend per month) that can help visitors learn about anything from the wildest of the province’s bears to the habits of our smallest micro-organisms.
