Minerals We Use Everyday: Mined from Our 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. This exhibit will be open through June 3.
