Trip to Maine Mineral and Gem Museum, Spring Term


with Barb Toner

Calendar Apr 26, 2024 at 10 am


Back by popular demand: The Maine Mineral and Gem Museum is a fascinating and interactive museum tucked away in Bethel Maine, which rivals small museums in bigger cities. The quality and quantity of samples are stunning and the displays are interesting and very well done.

The cost per person is $10.00, (this is discounted from the regular $15 admission) payable at the admissions desk on arrival. We will spend roughly 2 hours (flexible) visiting the museum (you can wander the museum on your own; there is much to “ooo and ahhh” over) From tourmaline to talc and mica to meteorites, you will come away with new knowledge and appreciation of the minerals and gems of Maine!

If interested, after the visit, participants can stay for lunch at a local restaurant (if available)

Jim and Robin started their business over 25 years ago, with one greenhouse. Robin had worked in a greenhouse as a teenager and grew up on a farm, so she had always done gardening. Robin received her BS degree from UMF in 1980. She was employed by UMF for 20 years as a Groundskeeper and grew flowers for the campus. She has taken gardening courses over the years along with floral design and cut flower farming classes. Much of her knowledge is from experience and mentors.
