Moose Lake Agate and Geological Interpretive Center
|Thanks to our president Phil Gotsch, the Moose Lake Agate and Geological Interpretive Center at Moose Lake State Park is a reality. Dedicated in 2004, the center is devoted to Lake Superior Agates and minerals of Minnesota. The club contributed funds toward the showcases in the center and various members lent or donated pieces from their collections. Phil championed the cause across the state and encouraged local clubs to work together to create MAGIC.
The Moose Lake 4,500 square foot building, located at the entrance to the park, includes a multi-purpose classroom, nature store gift shop, park offices, a resource workroom, restrooms, and an exhibition hall that showcases Minnesota’s gemstone, the Lake Superior Agate. Interpretive displays focus on rocks, minerals and geology of Minnesota.
