Heartland Center 30th Anniversary Activities

Over the next two years, the Heartland Center will be celebrating its 30th anniversary with two significant events. We returned to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in October, 2016 for our annual institute that was a resounding success. In 2017, we are publishing the 4th edition of our book, Clues to Rural Community Survival. Keep an eye on your inbox for details about these two exciting events.
