The exit to Boardman, Oregon, where the SAGE Center is located, is often ignored by drivers on Interstate 84. But if you want to learn about the history and technology for sustainable agriculture and energy, it’s worth a stop.

The interactive exhibits here are educational and fun. You can try your hand at milking a cow (not a real one, but you’ll get the idea) or operating a combine.
