The High Desert Museum is nominated for a Sage Award from the Bend Chamber of Commerce for their long standing dedication to community involvement and enrichment.  Communications Manager Cathy Carroll says they've had millions of guests over the years: "The Museum has been such an integral part of this community for almost 30 years now. And it touches the lives of so many people and really changes how they thought about the natural resources and culture of this region. And since the Museum opened in 1982, it's touched people, certainly in this area and around the world. Millions of people have come through our doors over the last 30 years." Carroll says the founding vision of founder Don Kerr was to have a place that was a very interactive museum. She adds that the extensive work they have done with the school districts and now special programs for children with disabilities keeps them involved with the community.
