Calumet Heritage Partnership
The Calumet Heritage Partnership has initiated a feasibility study to create a National Heritage Area. According to the National Park Service, National Heritage Areas (NHAs) are regions “designated by Congress as places where natural, cultural, and historic resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape.”
Thanks for a Great Calumet Summit! The conversations at the Calumet Summit about the vision for a Calumet National Heritage Area provided important input for the feasibility study and garnered some media coverage. The event, held May 12-13, 2015, was a bi-state gathering of environmental, governmental, business, non-profit, educational, and community groups organized by the Calumet Stewardship Initiative.
