The Western Museum of Mining & Industry is pleased to announce the February 9 opening of its next exhibit, “Minerals You Use Everyday from the National Forests.” This exhibit consists of an interactive component from the National Museum of Forest Service History and a selection of minerals from WMMI’s collection. Whether we realize it or not, modern civilization is heavily dependent on minerals for everything from computers and electricity to toothpaste and makeup. This exhibit highlights this importance and demonstrates how America’s national forests help supply the country’s mineral needs. The exhibit officially opens at 6 p.m. on February 9, followed by a 7 p.m lecture by Tom L. Thompson, president of the National Museum of Forest Service History. Thompson’s subject is “A History of the Forest Service: Reflecting on the Times, Ties, Timbers, Stakes, and Statutes.” Light refreshments will be offered. The museum requests that those interested in attending please contact the museum to reserve a spot. Please call (719) 488-0880 or respond by e-mail at rsvp@wmmi.org. This exhibit will be open through June 3. A second lecture will be presented on April 13 by Mindy S. Vogel, a Forest Service geologist, entitled “Rock, Paper, Forest Service: A Summary of Mining and Permitting on Forest Service Lands.” To learn more about WMMI, its programs, and events, please visit the museum website, www.wmmi.org.

The Western Museum of Mining & Industry is pleased to announce the February 9 opening of its next exhibit, “Minerals You Use Everyday from the National Forests.” This exhibit consists of an interactive component from the National Museum of Forest Service History and a selection of minerals from WMMI’s collection. Whether we realize it or not, modern civilization is heavily dependent on minerals for everything from computers and electricity to toothpaste and makeup. This exhibit highlights this importance and demonstrates how America’s national forests help supply the country’s mineral needs. The exhibit officially opens at 6 p.m. on February 9, followed by a 7 p.m lecture by Tom L. Thompson, president of the National Museum of Forest Service History. Thompson’s subject is “A History of the Forest Service: Reflecting on the Times, Ties, Timbers, Stakes, and Statutes.” Light refreshments will be offered. The museum requests that those interested in attending please contact the museum to reserve a spot. Please call (719) 488-0880 or respond by e-mail at rsvp@wmmi.org. This exhibit will be open through June 3. A second lecture will be presented on April 13 by Mindy S. Vogel, a Forest Service geologist, entitled “Rock, Paper, Forest Service: A Summary of Mining and Permitting on Forest Service Lands.” To learn more about WMMI, its programs, and events, please visit the museum website, www.wmmi.org.
