The Heritage Initiative – Many Waters, Many Stories, One Special Place
The Heritage Initiative is a community project asking our neighbors in the Namekagon – St. Croix River region if a National Heritage Area would be a good fit for our area. The Initiative seeks to identify shared stories and special places, discuss benefits and challenges, and ultimately decide whether or not to pursue Heritage Area designation.
The Heritage Initiative is facilitated by the St. Croix Valley Foundation and led by a task force comprised of citizens from through the region. The Namekagon River Partnership is collaborating with this intriguing initiative, as it will provide economic benefits for our area and may indirectly provide conservation benefits for the Namekagon River. We are co-hosting a Heritage Discovery Workshop at 9am on April 21st, at the Sawmill Saloon in Seeley.
Take a look at these materials and share your thoughts with us.
