Destination Oregon: Oregon Film Museum in Astoria

More than 400 movies and television programs have been filmed in Oregon. In Astoria there is a museum that celebrates the legacy of those films and film-making in our state, but it emphasizes one particular movie made right in their hometown. For this week’s Destination Oregon, Dave Jones takes you to the Oregon Film Museum.

Destination Oregon: Volunteers Help Prepare for the Pendleton Round-Up

The 108th Pendleton Round-Up starts in two weeks. The best cowboys and cowgirls in the land will compete in the historic rodeo, which wouldn’t be able to take place if not for the hard work of more than 1,400 volunteers.
