Featured NHAs

Whether showcasing a significant landscape, theme, or historic event, each NHA contributes its own unique perspective to our national heritage.

Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor

The Erie Canalway National Heritage Area Corridor in New York State has 450 miles of water trails.

Appalachian Forest National Heritage Area

One of the programs of the Appalachian Forest National Heritage Area is the Pollinator Initiative.

The NHA offers resources on how to support pollinators, either by creating your own pollinator habitat, adding to the knowledge base for pollinators in the Appalachian Forest region, or by spreading awareness in your community. 

The AFNHA hosted the national Pollinator Conservation Conference in 2021.

Augusta Canal National Heritage Area

The Augusta Canal NHA in Augusta, GA, tells the story of the Industrial Revolution in the American South by providing interactive exhibits and music cruises, and history and nature tours around the canal. The Augusta Canal Authority, which manages the NHA, derives most of its revenue from the hydro-electric power generated by diverting waters from the Augusta Canal back into the Savannah River. By selling power back to the grid, the NHA can cover its heritage programming without drawing on the city’s general revenue property tax. It’s a self-sustaining, economic driver for the Augusta community.
