We Value our Educational Partners
Always striving to offer the most comprehensive experience possible, the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum has partnered with several organizations. These partnerships allow us to expand our educational reach and offer exciting new programs, while also making a valuable contribution to our community.
Our partnership with McMinnville High School provides hands-on educational opportunities to their Engineering and Aerospace Sciences Academy, while our partnership with Chemeketa Community College enhances their current offerings. We also offer exciting programs in conjunction with the Civil Air Patrol and the FIRST Lego League Robotics Competition.

The Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum and the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) have a proud history of working together. From helping to escort the “Spruce Goose” to the Museum along Highway 18 in 1993, to presenting the color guard at special events, the CAP has been an active participant in the Museum’s history.
