The Evergreen IMAX theater was completed in 2007. Work began on the space museum building in September 2006. As of mid-June, 2008, there are now two main large exhibit centers open to the public, consisting of aviation, where the Spruce Goose acts to anchor the other exhibits, and space flight, in another, matching, new large building. The current center of the space flight exhibit building is occupied by the SR-71 'Blackbird', which originally rested under one wing of the Spruce Goose. Flight simulators for landing the space shuttle, as well as for Gemini capsule docking and the Lunar Excursion Module moon landing, are available for use by visitors now.

Since its formation in 1996, Wallowa Resources has worked to bring people together in a common goal: to blend the ecological needs of the land with the economic needs of the community.

What could be better than that?
And you'll need somewhere to stay before and after the dance. There's some wonderful lodging in Oregon to be found in Wallowa County:
Keep your rural weekend theme going by staying at the Barking Mad Farm Bed & Breakfast. Diana & Hunter will be happy to host you in their much-less-than-rustic guestrooms on their farm overlooking Joseph and Enterprise Oregon. Just because they're Oregon lodging pet friendly doesn't mean that they've gone to the dogs!
Nearby Alder Slope Bed & Breakfast also gives you the opportunity to bring along your horse for the weekend. Give Jerry or Barrie a call when you're ready to pull that trailer to some of the most spectacular locations for Oregon trail riding in the Wallowa Mountains.
If city lodging is more your style, both Belle Pepper's Bed & Breakfast and the Bronze Antler Bed & Breakfast are located in the town of Joseph Oregon. Enjoy your barn dance, but stay in town for the shops, art galleries and restaurants of this art colony town.
The Willamette Valley, Oregon's largest AVA (American Vitaculture Area), stretches 150 miles from Portland, Oregon. to south of Salem and consists of six sub-appellations. 200 wineries and 10,000 acres of quality Oregon wine grapes. The rich, diverse soil and relatively mild climate make for ideal grape growing conditions. All this combined with warm summer days and cool nights allows the wine grapes to develop their flavor and complexity.
Being "stewards of the land", a large percentage of Oregon's winemakers are certified as sustainable, organic, or biodynamic. Sustainability is both a priority and lifestyle even for those not certified.
The Willamette Valley region there has numerous Oregon Bed and Breakfast inns, unique amongst themselves yet each providing the consistent high standards of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild. Oregon Wine Country Lodging is a place where visitors can visit the wineries and find great shopping, fine dining and lively art communities. During the summer months roadside farm stands and farmers markets appear all through the Valley. Other outdoor adventures include birdwatching, hiking, and nearly 40 public golf courses!
