Voice Your Opinion About Enhancing Our Historic and Cultural Sites

 

Please take a few minutes to answer the eight questions on the Survey Monkey
questionnaire at  <https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SWTX2QB>
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SWTX2QB.

 

In September 2012, the Michigan State Parks and Outdoor Recreation Blue
Ribbon Panel submitted a report to Governor Rick Snyder that included
heritage resources in its vision for a vibrant system of parks, trails and
recreation throughout our state. The first paragraph reads:

 

"Michigan's natural resources are the foundation of a world-class parks and
outdoor recreation system. The state's abundant, high-quality, and-in many
instances-globally unique natural, cultural, historic and prehistoric
resources include the Great Lakes and beaches, inland lakes and streams,
grass lands, forests, and historic and cultural sites (such as battlefields,
lighthouses, ancient burial grounds and birthplaces of notable Michigan
residents). These must be protected and enhanced to grow Michigan's economy
and improve the well-being of our residents and visitors."

 

Last year, an ad hoc group of regional and statewide heritage organization
leaders was convened by the Michigan Historical Commission, the Historical
Society of Michigan and the Michigan Historical Center, calling itself the
Michigan Heritage Leadership Council. It began meeting to discuss ways our
sector can contribute to the vision set out by this report. One avenue is to
increase the incorporation of cultural heritage resources into trails and
parks. A first step toward achieving this goal is to get a better handle on
what is already going on across the state. 

 

This is where you come in.

 

Please take a few minutes to answer the eight questions on the Survey Monkey
questionnaire at  <https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SWTX2QB>
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/SWTX2QB. The survey also gives you an
opportunity to indicate interest in working on this goal in your part of the
state.
