The Umpqua Discovery Center – Fun for the whole family! Once you step inside the Umpqua Discovery Center you will begin your adventure of Tidewater Country. Travel back in time in Tidewaters and Time with stories around a campfire with the Kuuich Indians. Learn about the early explorers and watch videos of logging as it was done in the past. Walk through a fish cannery and listen as the pioneers tell their tales. Enter a 1900’s tidewater town and visit the mercantile, tailor, and listen as the barber talks about the upcoming barn dance.
Your adventure continues as you hike the indoor trail of Pathways to Discovery and learn about the plants and animals of tidewater country. Slide into the bear cave to learn about hibernating bears and enter the weather station that has interactive OMSI exhibits on rain, wind, and atmosphere. At the end of the trail there are videos on skeletons, seashore, Animal Homes, and weather.
