Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

High Desert Museum Gets an Upgrade

Posted By on Thu, Dec 6, 2012 at 10:17 AM

If you're looking for some holiday fun for yourself or the entire family, be sure to check out the new addition at the High Desert Museum.
On Nov. 17, they opened the new E.L. Wiegand Pavilion. Cathy Carroll, the museum's communications and promotions manager, expressed that they named the facility after the Reno-based foundation who awarded them the grant.
"A significant grant of $250,000 allowed us to make our performance space much more high-tech, warm and cozy," she said.
The pavilion will have an adjustable window system that can stack together to create a more intimate experience with the outdoors for members and guests.
It will also have new audiovisual, lighting and backstage enhancements for programs.
From Dec. 26 to Jan. 5, the brand-new pavilion will present a new program called Survivor:Animals Adapt. You will experience the tenacious grip of a tree-climbing porcupine, the keen hearing sense from a stunning barn owl and a visit from the fastest animal in the world—a peregrine falcon. Be sure to check out these fascinating adaptations on display later this month.
