Young Professionals Network @ High Desert Museum
Wednesday, July 26 | 5:00pm - 7:00pm
The High Desert Museum has been inspiring families since 1982 and is consistently rated as the top Central
Oregon attraction by Trip Advisor. With 135 acres and more than 100,000 square feet of exhibit space, it’s a
“must see” for anyone travelling through the area.
At the Museum, visitors get close-up views of native wildlife, such as river otters, bobcat, porcupine and
badger. They can talk with historic characters who’ll share tales of early Oregon explorers and settlers.
Guests can visit an authentic homestead and sawmill from 1904 and hear about life in the fledgling town
called Bend. Visitors can experience a close encounter with owls, falcons, hawks and even a vulture during
our summer outdoor flight show, where the birds literally fly right over head. People can learn about Native
American culture and history, and delight their children with one of many fun, hands-on programs that bring
history and science to life.
Changing exhibits feature unique stories about the High Desert landscape, its inhabitants, wildlife and
culture. Designed to engage and inspire visitors, these exhibits are often paired with programs, field trips
and special events so visitors can explore a topic in greater detail.
Our purpose is to provide visitors with a deeper understanding of the region’s arts, culture, history and
natural sciences through the presentation and interpretation of visual art exhibits, historical artifacts, living
history performances and wildlife encounters, and to get connected to the past while discovering their role in
the present and responsibility to the future.
