Beautiful and educational stop
What a gem hidden in the area. Wonderful and entertaining Ag experience for all ages. I would highly recommend it.
Stop along Columbia river
On our trip in the area my husband was obsessed with the irrigation systems out here so he was thrilled to discover the Sage center. It was full of history and education about sustainable farming. All ages of multigenerational family enjoyed reading and interacting with displays.
Interesting and fun
Clean, informative! Fun playground got the kids right out of the car. Inside had a scavenger hunt for the kids. We all loved watching the video in the hot air balloon simulation. Great for families and kids!
Surprisingly Fun and Interesting!
We have driven by the Sage Center multiple times—finally we dropped in. We were fascinated by the current amount of diverse agricultural in the Boardman and Heppner Oregon area. Pioneer farmers and current farming generations were highlighted. The simulated hot air balloon ride was “Disneyland” quality.
What an amazing place
We stopped here after our business meeting and the place is a wealth of information regarding the area. Some exhibits are interactive and it combines history with current operations. If you’re in this area, make a stop here a priority.
