Heritage economy focus of forums

Between May 31 and June 7, the Sierra Business Council and the California Preservation Foundation will be presenting a series of forums related to the heritage economy and cultural tourism concepts.

The heritage economy can be defined as natural, cultural, historic, and recreational resources that combine for a cohesive, nationally distinctive landscape arising from patterns of human activity shaped by geography.

The Sierra Business Council and California Preservation Foundation will address some of the opportunities around cultural tourism and historic preservation and how they can complement other activities already taking place.

Some of the ways to encourage and promote heritage economy activities include cultivation of the arts, protection and preservation of historical resources, support for agricultural activities, and sustainable tourism development. It is part of the Sierra Business Council’s goals to organize regional partnerships that promote and sustain a cultural and heritage economy.

The forum schedule includes the following dates and locations:

• May 31- 7:30-9:30 a.m. Rose Room at Auburn City Hall
