Lied Discovery Children’s Museum revealed its new featured exhibition, Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home, on Saturday, June 4, with an interactive, collaborative grand opening event. While visitors got a first look at the exhibit in the museum’s Cultural Gallery – and got the chance to meet Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl in person – the museum’s stage area and back parking lot were full of demonstration booths and service vehicles provided by the U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Bureau of Land Management. Children and families experienced a day full of fun and education about the outdoors and our precious natural resources.
Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home, sponsored locally by Cox Communications, is on display at Lied Discovery Children’s Museum through September 25, 2011. The museum is located in Downtown Las Vegas, at 833 Las Vegas Blvd. North, and currently open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, call (702) 382-KIDS or visit www.LDCM.org.
