This all-day event is for those working to (1) promote the National Heritage Area (NHA), (2) preserve and maintain the cultural resources of the NHA, (3) collaborate in the fields of conservation, economic development, recreation, preservation, storytelling, education, interpretation, education and sustainability in the Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Area.
Presentations focus around building partnerships to engage with people throughout the Illinois & Michigan Canal National Heritage Area. Networking opportunities at the Canal Alliance Congress allow representatives from neighboring towns to share updates and plans.
