What are National Heritage Areas (NHAs)? How do they work? What roles do they play in their communities? What stories do they tell? Discover America's NHAs by listening to the National Heritage Areas Podcast, produced by the National Heritage Areas Program of the Northeast Regional Office of the National Park Service.
The National Heritage Areas Podcast returns for Season 4 in 2021 and 2022. This season focuses on key communications themes of Climate Resilience and Tribal Affairs. In the first two episodes, we discuss issues related to the ongoing Climate Crisis and cultural resource preservation with guests including NPS experts and National Heritage Area leaders. Next, we join regional leaders in Tribal Affairs to discuss Indigenous engagement & histories within the NHA program.
Season 3 of the National Heritage Areas Podcast takes a closer look at how National Heritage Areas help tell all Americans’ stories. In each episode, Communications Coordinator Jules Long sits down with a different NHA across the country to learn about a lesser-known story, why it's important, and how that NHA is working to remember and share that history.
The National Heritage Areas Program returns in 2018 with a second season of the podcast series. Listen as Program Manager, Peter Samuel and (SCA) Communications Coordinator, Francesca Calarco discuss different types of arts, trails, and history programming in the country's heritage areas. In each episode, we dive into how heritage areas operate and work to benefit their communities.
In this first season of the National Heritage Areas Program podcast series, listen in as Program Manager, Peter Samuel and (SCA) Communications Coordinator, Miriam Akervall discuss what makes the program tick in conversation with National Heritage Area and National Park Service staff.
