NH at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival
Themes - Partnerships for Community Service

A variety of public agencies are dedicated to preserving aspects of the state's heritage and contribute to it. Their work touches upon city and town planning, transportation, culture and arts, historic preservation, library management, education, agriculture, dairy promotion, corrections, and energy. Private partnerships dedicated to the concept of resource management and land stewardship are an important partner in the efforts to preserve New Hampshire's cherished natural resources and open landscape.
