A friend is someone who supports what you do. We may have interviewed you about a skill or tradition that you keep alive. You may be the owner of a barn that we have documented. You may be the lady down the street who crochets or quits and shares her creations with her family and friends, either for free or for nominal income. You may be a member of a tribal community carrying out your cultural heritage traditions in song, dance and memorial.
The Bear River Heritage Area’s mission is to identify, preserve, and enhance our cultural and natural heritage, and to support and sustain the diverse economic opportunities located in Bear Lake, Caribou, Franklin, and Oneida in Idaho; and Box Elder, Cache, and Rich in Utah. We are dedicated to economic development through promotion and stewardship of cultural and natural resources that are unique to this region.
Your annual tax-decutcible donation helps us to continue the work of promoting the cultural and natural resources that are unique to the Bear River Heritage Area.
