The Bear River Heritage Area will host a Discovery Day on Monday, Aug. 19, to share the accomplishments, mission and goals of the group. A national designation question-and-answer period will be included on the agenda. Respected guests from the Mormon Pioneer National Heritage Area, Great Basin National Heritage Area, Congressman Rob Bishop’s Brigham City office, and other guests from city and county government will be on hand discuss the process of designation.

Representatives and the general public from northern Utah and southeastern Idaho are encouraged to attend. The meeting will take place from 10 a.m. to noon at the Brigham City Museum of Art and History at 24 N. 300 West in Brigham City. Afterwards a Dutch oven lunch will be prepared and served at Holmgren Historical Farm, 460 N. 300 East in Tremonton. The cost of the lunch is $10 per person.

The Bear River Heritage Area was created in 2000 as a way of supporting and protecting our local heritage resources and increasing economic development through heritage tourism.

The BRHA includes seven counties; Box Elder, Cache and Rich in northern Utah, and Bear Lake, Caribou, Franklin and Oneida in southeastern Idaho, all located, in whole or in part, within the Bear River drainage.
