What Lies Beneath: Minerals of the Pacific Northwest

Nature

The Whatcom Museum has partnered with members of the Friends of Mineralogy – Pacific Northwest Chapter to present an incredible display of minerals collected throughout the Pacific Northwest. From those the size of a fingernail to those requiring a forklift, learn how minerals are formed and where they are found. See the collector’s “tools of the trade” and marvel at the extremes some will go to find the perfect specimen. Photos and video document the field work involved and help us understand where these minerals are formed and how they are collected. Complementing the exhibition will be a variety of programs and hands-on activities.
