Our Natural World

Posted by on May 23, 2012 in Exhibits

Few places in the world have as great a diversity of wildlife as Alberta. The province boasts 587 species that are traditionally considered wildlife, including 10 species of amphibians, 93 mammals, 411 birds, 8 reptiles and 65 fish. British Columbia is the only province in Canada with a greater number of mammals. Our Natural World exhibit is a mountainous representation of the wilds of our region and features species that are native to our area.

Built into the campfire are interactive display stations and above the fire hangs a giant tiger lily, which grows wild in the area.
