Join Dr. Mike Longan, board member of the Calumet Heritage Partnership, as he discusses the efforts to make the Calumet region a National Heritage Area! National Heritage Areas are “designated by Congress as places where natural, cultural, and historic resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape.”
The Calumet Heritage Partnership is a diverse, bi-state partnership of environmental, cultural and historical organizations and individuals, libraries, educational institutions, municipalities, and governmental agencies. These partners are working together to identify, preserve, protect and reclaim the natural, historical, cultural and recreational heritage of the Calumet region of Illinois and Indiana for the purposes of educating and inspiring the public, restoring regional pride, and revitalizing our communities and their interconnectedness.
Join Dr. Longan on Thursday, April 7 at 5:30p to hear more about the efforts to identify and preserve the Calumet region’s unique heritage.
