The Wildlife Experience Celebrates The Dog Days of Summer with Exhibits, Movies & Paws
DENVER—April X, 2007— The Dogs Days of Summer are heating up at The Wildlife Experience with exhibits, movies and more paws than you can shake a stick at.
This summer The Wildlife Experience is featuring two new exhibits: Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs and Paws & Reflect: Art of Canines as well as the showing of Wolves in the Extreme Screen Theater.
Wolf to Woof: The Story of Dogs explores the history, biology and development of dogs and the role of dogs in human societies. Paws & Reflect: Art of Canines features artwork in acrylic, mixed media, oil, pencil, watercolor, gouache, scratchboard and bronze sculptures celebrating the canine. Wolves gives audiences a look into the reclusive lives of wolves, their pack behavior and an opportune glance back at the plight of the gray wolves struggle to recover from near extinction.
In addition to exhibits, visitors will also be treated to “paw”-some activities such as:
ß Dog Days with My Best Friend – entries will be displayed in the Habitat Hallway and a Weekly Woof will be featured on our website
