The Douglas County Museum was designed by the San Francisco architectural firm of Backen, Arrigoni & Ross and built in 1969. The design received a National Award of Merit from the American Institute of Architects. Major additions were completed in 1979 and 1989 to expand both exhibition space and onsite storage facilities. In 2006 the Umpqua River Lighthouse and Museum joined forces with DCM to improve the visitor experience at both sites.<\/p>\r\n

The purpose of the Museum is to “collect, preserve, interpret and exhibit materials related to the history and natural history of Douglas County\". Visitors can expect to experience professional, creative depictions of historical figures and events representing the Umpqua Valley. The rich history our area provides gives the Museum opportunities to exhibit more than ten thousand years of natural and cultural history through detailed dioramas and topical exhibits. The natural history dioramas house native wildlife in richly depicted habitats from the crest of the Cascades to the Pacific Ocean.<\/p>\r\n

The museum facility contains thousands of square feet of exhibit galleries, storage areas, library, photo laboratory, auditorium, gift shop and research facilities<\/p>","post_name":"douglas-county-museum-of-natural-cultural-history","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"43.1941","lng":"-123.361","distance":"14.9","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/hertitage-museum\/douglas-county-museum-of-natural-cultural-history\/","terms":"a Museums & Interpretive Center<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Oregon Heritage<\/a>)"},{"ID":"4263","post_title":"Wildlife Safari","post_content":"

Wildlife Safari is a fun-filled family destination where you can view animals in their natural habitat, roaming freely as they do in the wild. We are also a world renowned medical and research facility and a nationally recognized educational facility for veterinary and biological sciences. These key points make Wildlife Safari a favorite stop for those traveling along the I-5 corridor through southern Oregon, and a worthwhile destination for those who haven't even considered our area in their travel plans.<\/p>","post_name":"wildlife-safari","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"43.1421","lng":"-123.416","distance":"19.7","permalink":"\/see-do\/oregon-heritage\/native-american-heritage\/wildlife-safari\/","terms":"an Indian Country Attraction<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Oregon Heritage<\/a>)"},{"ID":"203610","post_title":"Swiftwater Park","post_content":"

Swiftwater Park seems far away from the town of Roseburg, even though it is a mere 22 miles away; it maintains a local culture that is quite different. It is a fisherman’s paradise and is educational in that nature is the predominant player; even though there are houses and people it is still an environment of nature.  For anyone who has not lived and experienced a mighty river like the North Umpqua, the whole area is a lesson in why we must preserve places like Swiftwater Park.<\/p>\r\n

In addition to the beauty there is good fishing, swimming in the summer, hiking on the North Umpqua Trail, the Fish Hatchery, the entry of Rock Creek into the North Umpqua, and even the remains of the old Tioga store and post office. In short, it is an area that has much to offer. The Idleyld Store has a surprisingly good supply of just about everything, including made-to-order food to eat there or take back to where you are staying.  Glide, only three miles away has three restaurants, a bank and post office.<\/p>","post_name":"swiftwater-park","post_type":"resource","slug":"attractions","name":"Attractions","lat":"43.3236","lng":"-122.997","distance":"25.5","permalink":"\/see-do\/recreation\/geotourism-sustainable-travel\/swiftwater-park\/","terms":"a Sustainable Travel<\/a>\r\n\t\t\t\t\t\t (within Recreation<\/a>)"}]},"success":true,"html":""}
