    Name: Rock Garden Opening & Dedication
    Date: August 18, 2017
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Maine’s most unique geological exhibit is officially opening! Accessible to the public, MMGM’s Rock Garden introduces Maine's geology with 22 truly amazing geological specimens from around the State (and one mammoth specimen from outer space!). Built as an outside exhibit, the Rock Garden is already being utilized as a teaching tool with regional school groups and introduces the museum's educational mission. Specimens include folded marble to monolithic granite pieces along with a 27-ton conglomerate boulder. Join us at MMGM for the ribbon-cutting and a special dedication ceremony to honor Arthur M. Hussey, PhD, who inspired all of us to think bigger, to be better and to collect a lot more rocks.

    Appetizers and cash bar.
