What is the SAGE Center in Boardman, Oregon?
The SAGE Center is a tourist attraction located just off I-84 that highlights Sustainable AGriculture and Energy produced in Morrow County. It includes a museum and visitor center which features interactive exhibits that highlight state-of-the-art technologies used by growers and other industries in the area.
In short, the SAGE Center is a very cool learning experience. For instance, if you’ve ever wondered how a potato gets from farm to table or how farmers are able to plant corn in such straight lines – you’ll learn all about it at the SAGE Center. They even have a hot air balloon ride inside the Center – it’s a simulation of course – and it will take you on a trip over Morrow County. They also sell Tillamook Ice Cream!
The SAGE Center is currently open on weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission is $5.00 for adults and children under 5 are free. Take exit 164 from I-84 and turn north toward the river and then take the first right on Front Street. There’s plenty of parking (RVs and Trailers welcome), restrooms, and even a dog area.
