SRAC - Rock and Minerals Exhibit and Sale!

Gloria Dick and Ted Keir Displays
 Recently, we asked SRAC members Gloria Dick and Ted Keir to help us put up a new exhibit in our lecture hall dedicated to the "ROCK HOUNDS" of the area. As a result, visitors can now see a huge display of rare and beautiful minerals collected over many years between these two long time collectors and eldest members of the local CheHanna Rock and Mineral Club.

STILL - The exhibit is not yet finished! - We are also working on a HUGE fluorescent mineral viewer box that will  show off those minerals that fluoresce under UV light - highlighting Ted Keir's collection.

If that wasn't enough - we also have DOUBLED our rock and minerals for sale in our SRAC Gift Shop! Large and small - but all at great prices. As you can see - we are stepping it up for the 2012 tourism season!

All of this is in addition to the thousands of local artifacts, woolly mammoth exhibit and so many other things to see and shop for
One of several cases of rocks and minerals for sale!
