Title: Gillespie Museum of Minerals
Url: http://www.stetson.edu/other/gillespie-museum/
Publisher: Stetson University
Description: The Gillespie Museum, located on the campus of Stetson University, houses an extensive rock and mineral collection, and provides visitors and students a place in which curiosity, interest and creativity can be explored. Programs are provided for families, special interest groups, and school groups. The Museum programs focus on using the educational collections to help students learn basic science skills such as observation, classification, communication, investigation and interpretation. The Museum also provides off-site outreach programs by participating in community events such as EarthFest and Earth Day celebrations, local festivals, and scouting programs. Traveling exhibits are developed for loan to other Museums, Chambers of Commerce and Rock and Mineral Clubs. In an effort to present an Earth science museum in a natural setting, a Florida Native Landscape garden has been added to the grounds. The landscape provides an opportunity for individuals to learn alternative ways in which to establish a garden without the use of excess water and pesticides.
