Green Drinks Gary - Creating a Calumet National Heritage Area Details:

Come on out to Mama Pearl’s BBQ, located at 411 East 5th Avenue in Gary, Indiana, on May 3rd from 6 – 8pm for Green Drinks Gary and learn about the ongoing effort, led by the Calumet Heritage Partnership and The Field Museum, to create a Calumet National Heritage Area. National Heritage Areas shine a light on local heritage that is nationally important. In doing so they can attract tourism, new economic opportunities, and increase civic engagement. They are grass-roots initiatives that receive federal support, but need the support of locals to become a reality. Come learn more, and how you can get involved.

 

*From 6-6:30pm we encourage attendees to network with one another, order food, and get settled in. The guest speaker’s presentation will begin at 6:30pm. Mama Pearl’s does not serve alcohol however attendees are welcome to bring their own (byob).*

 

Presenter(s):
Mario Longoni is an Urban Anthropology Manager in the Keller Science Action Center at The Field Museum. His work in the Calumet Region dates back to 2002 when he contributed to the Journey Through Calumet project (http://archive.fieldmuseum.org/calumet/), highlighting the Region’s cultural assets. Subsequently he produced the Grab This Fish Tale comic book (https://www.fieldmuseum.org/sites/default/files/FishTale_web_0.pdf) to advise Calumet anglers on smart fish consumption. Like these previous projects, the Calumet National Heritage Area initiative aims to improve local quality of life by building on the existing strengths and resources of local communities and the wider region.
