Founded in 2002, The Wildlife Experience operates as part of CU South Denver at the same location starting January 2015. Serving as a cultural center and community asset, The Wildlife Experience includes a wildlife art and natural history museum, large-screen movies and a host of community and K-12 education programs. Special and seasonal events and activities for children and adults are held throughout the year. These attractions continue in 2015.

CU South has been put up for sale. However, the location is open and operating normally through September 2021.

Located east of Interstate 25 on Lincoln Avenue in Lone Tree, Colo., this signature facility is named for Dave Liniger, chairman emeritus of The Wildlife Experience and co-founder of REMAX International, Inc., and his wife, Gail Liniger, and their family. Effective January 2015, The Wildlife Experience—a natural history museum and art gallery—was donated to the University of Colorado. The generous gift of the building and property—valued at $40 million—is the largest real estate donation in the university’s 138-year history.

The gift allowed CU to expand its south Denver presence that began when The Wildlife Experience and the university first collaborated by leasing space in April 2014. The gift of the entire building and operations allows for more services, more convenience and more value to be delivered to south Denver residents, employers and area professionals.

CU added space at the Liniger Building for the fall 2014 semester—a second-floor gallery area was converted into two 48-seat classrooms and a 32-seat computer lab as well as a faculty and student resource center. There is also a student lounge. Overall, CU renovated 11,000 square feet of the 151,000-square-foot facility. In 2015, CU will provide additional space for classrooms, faculty offices and student study rooms. 

Classes are offered for degree-seeking and continuing education students and include popular-interest areas such as nursing, engineering, education and business. All four CU campuses—CU Anschutz Medical Campus, CU-Boulder, CU Colorado Springs and CU Denver—collaborate in the success of the CU South Denver expansion.
