The term “heritage” has been used by many different groups and communities, but the term “Heritage National Park” (HNP) is a new one that gained momentum as a result of the efforts of two conservationists.
The name comes from the historic and rugged landscape that sits on the edge of the Cascade Mountains in Oregon, and is home to the region’s oldest and largest natural area of native grasslands.
HNP is the largest and most diverse of the state’s national parks, and includes more than 200 species of plants, including some that are threatened with extinction.
The new name reflects that conservation is part of the park’s mission.
“We are celebrating this diversity in the park,” said Lisa Schoebelen, a park spokeswoman.
The HNP includes about 3 million acres of national forests, grasslands, rivers and lakes, as well as a variety of other special features.
These include historic sites, archaeological sites and historic bridges.
The HNTP is part National Park Service (NPS), part state government and is administered by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a federal agency. “
Many people who have been here for many years are unaware that it was created by a national historic preservation group.”

It’s part of a broad national effort to preserve and protect the lands and waters of the United States.
“This is an opportunity for the people of this country to really get to know the place and know how important it is to them,” said Laura Fenton, who heads the HNP board and is president of the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA).
The new HNP name was chosen by the NPS Board of Directors in May, and was approved by the National Park Association (NPA), which represents parkland managers, in August.
“There are so many people who are coming out of the woodwork to be involved and want to work with us, and the NPA is really supportive,” said NPA Executive Director and HNP Board member Bob Johnson.
“They’ve been able to build a network and really bring a sense of urgency and a sense that this is a mission.”
The NPA board will hold a public meeting on June 6 to discuss the new name.
HNTPs board has a goal of having at least 25% of its members from outside of the NPDA sign up for membership.
“I think it will be very beneficial to the park and to the people who live in it, and they want to be part of this vision,” Johnson said.
The NPS has worked with NPA since 2010 to expand the boundaries of the parks that it manages, and it has helped to establish a network of volunteer conservators and partners that help conserve resources.
The group is working on a strategy for a larger national network of conservators, but it’s also working on new conservation strategies.
For example, it’s developing plans to expand a “herbal garden” in the Cascade River National Forest.
“The idea is to build gardens where you can sit on the river, and then you can actually walk and be able to get fresh water,” Johnson explained.
The project will include more than 400 plants, and will also include a garden to educate people about native flora and to show them how to use their own water.
“What it’s going to be is a network, not just for one individual or one group of people, but a network that is shared by everybody who wants to get involved,” Johnson added.
HNPs mission has attracted the attention of the nonprofit American Plant Society, which is helping to develop a new, more holistic conservation vision for the park.
“American Plant Society is a very important partner for the HNTPS and we’re really looking forward to working with them in the coming years to see how we can bring the vision to fruition,” said Jessica Schoeder, a landscape architect at the American Plant Association.
“It’s really about having a vision of the landscape that will allow people to live, work and enjoy this great place.”
The American Plant Council has also been instrumental in the creation of the HNPP’s vision.
In 2016, the group established a new “Herbal Garden Initiative,” which it says aims to expand access to native flora in the HNCA’s Cascade River national forest.
The Herbal Garden program, which includes the planting of native plants in garden plots, is an important tool for protecting and promoting ecosystems.
“You want people to come and help preserve these plants and to see them in their natural state, not be watered and treated like a vegetable,” Schoeter said.
“And I think people will find that very interesting, that they can really get out and experience and feel the
