My Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our adventure at the Bumpus Mine in September. Seabury, our guide was a great story teller and teacher. Looking for gems in the tailing piles was so much fun. We would love to come back and explore more of the town of Bethel when we have more time. The town itself is quite a "Gem". Seabury, we would love to see the winter pictures of the tunnels that you offered. Thank you.

We had a great time at the sluice learning intro geology and finding some nice "rocks". Would definitely do a mine tour but we were drive by visitors on the way to Bar Harbor so limited time. Our kids love the joy of discovery and this serendipitous side excursion on our vacation ranked second only to a water park. Keep up the good work

What a wonderful experience. Seabury did an excellent job and we learned a lot of information about the minerals and gems of Maine, as well as how to tell if a rock is native to the area or was left there by a glacier. Not only was the mine itself fascinating, but Seabury pointed out the local wild Strawberries, the frogs in the pond, and we got to see a woodpecker. My niece found a nice rose quartz that she had made into a necklace at Mt. Mann and I found some nice small specimens of Beryl and Mangnese Apatite. If you are in the area donít miss the Bumpus Mine. Thank you Seabury for a wonderful visit.

There is no better way to earn a cub scout badge, pin and belt loop then to get a guided tour of the Bumpus Mine. Seabury was excellent. He made the field trip fun with his humor, stories and interesting facts while teaching the boys the required cub scout items for their awards. They really enjoyed searching for treasures to take home. The Bumpus Mine is a hidden gem in the Bethel area that everyone should see. Thanks Seabury.

All I can say is "Wow" and "Thank you!" Seabury gave our 7th grade students a fabulous experience. He explained the geologic history of the area with appropriate vocabulary (not watered down! Thank you!) but he included analogies and anecdotes in his presentation making it understandable and memorable. The students loved the tunnels but I suspect that the hard hats were the biggest treat. They were having so much fun picking through the trailings that they didnít want to eat lunch (!!!) or leave. Thank you for a fantastic outing - I have been singing your praises to all of my colleagues. Cynthia Reedy
