What is a Calumet National Heritage Area designation, and what could it do for the region? Join representatives from the Calumet Heritage Partnership and The Field Museum on September 28 at 6:30p for an overview of the process to create a heritage area for the bi-state Calumet Region, followed by a discussion of how the designation can help to address the region’s goals and priorities.
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.
