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.”
Register for the Calumet Summit: Work on the National Heritage area and preliminary results from the community conversations (see CHP News below) will be discussed on May 12-13, 2015, at the Calumet Summit, a bi-state gathering of environmental, governmental, business, non-profit, educational, and community groups coming together to discuss regional priorities.
