Thanks to your ongoing support, the High Desert Museum is a critical resource for educators throughout Central Oregon and beyond.

“As a Bend La Pine teacher for 20 years – The Museum is one of my favorite places to bring my students year after year. The staff, animals, art, stories and exhibits never get old. Thank you for being so important to our community!” ~ Educator and Museum visitor

Through school field trips and special programs, students and educators from across the region have learned more about High Desert cultures and landscapes.

  • Teacher trainings at the Museum provide resources and connections.
  • Workshops support STEM learning outside the classroom for rural families.
