***This will be the first in a series of public meetings to gather feedback about what the public would like to see AFHA focus on in the future. AFHA is considering the possibility of National Heritage Area designation. This would bring the prestige of declaring our forest heritage as nationally significant, as well as the possibility of support through the National Park Service. AFHA hopes that the planning process can help to raise awareness about this option, and build support to help achieve NHA designation. All are encouraged to attend the public meetings, and/or to submit any comments directly to AFHA.
