The new Royal Alberta Museum belongs to all Albertans, said Ray Danyluk, Minister of Infrastructure. It represents who we are, have been and will be. This is why it s important Albertans get an opportunity to see what their new museum may look like and to share their comments on the designs with us. Albertans are invited to view and comment on the designs until August 24. The exterior design of the new Royal Alberta Museum must be such as to compel Albertans and our guests to visit and experience the facility for the first time, said Lindsay Blackett, Minister of Culture and Community Spirit. Inside, the province s treasures and the spirit of discovery will spark their desire to return time and again. Public comments received via the website will be collected and submitted to an expert review panel along with the project proposals submitted by each design build team. The expert review panel will evaluate the design build teams and their proposals based on design, ability to deliver the project, and on the best value offered for the budget. The successful design build team and their design for the new Royal Alberta Museum will be announced in September. Members of the review panel include: Gary Campbell, Project Fairness Commissioner; Simon Farbrother, City Manager, City of Edmonton; Marla Daniels, President, Friends of Royal Alberta Museum; Erin McDonald, President, Board of Directors, Alberta Museums Association; John Neilson, Fellow of the Royal ArchitectuLedcor Design Build (Alberta) Inc., design submission for the future new Royal Alberta Museum.

“This project would not be possible without the dedication of generous volunteers,” said project coordinator Janine Kohn. “Frogs and toads are indicators of habitat quality and provide valuable information on the condition of Minnesota’s wetlands. Volunteers’ reports help us track the health of the state’s frog and toad populations and, therefore, wetlands and water quality.”.
