BAKER CITY – The National Historic Oregon Trail Interpretive Center is reopening the annual children’s exhibit, “Wagon’s Ho! An Interactive Oregon Trail Experience.” It will run from Feb. 16 through June 4.

The exhibit features new elements on wildlife habitats, an updated pioneer clothing try-on activity and puppet theater, and updated versions of seven other activities.

The centerpiece of the exhibit is a full-scale, packable pioneer wagon with foam blocks representing all the items needed for a cross-country pioneer journey.

Grants from Oregon Community Foundation, Oregon Heritage Commission, Trail Tenders and fee revenue funded the exhibit.

The Trail Center is five miles east of Baker City on Highway 86. For admission costs and hours, call 541-523-1843, or visit
