Dangers of the Fox/Wisconsin Heritage Parkway

Written By: Travis Buhler  |  Posted: Friday, November 2nd, 2012

                In recent years, the National Park Service [NPS] has been declaring certain areas of our country as "National Heritage Areas".  According to the NPS, "National Heritage Areas [NHA] are designated by Congress as places where natural, cultural, and historic resources combine to form a cohesive, nationally important landscape."  Their goal is to work with local and state groups and governments to ensure the preservation of similar notable places within a particular area in an effort to build appreciation of our country's history and increase tourist dollars for those areas.

                One such area being proposed as an NHA is the old trader's route from Green Bay to Prairie du Chien.  The Fox and Wisconsin rivers, along with the short portage connecting the two rivers, were used by explorers and fur traders prior to Wisconsin's colonization as a pathway connecting the Great Lakes to the Mississippi River.  The name of the NHA would be the Fox-Wisconsin Parkway National Heritage Area [FWHP].
