PROGRAMS THAT PROMOTE LAND GRABS
Heritage Area Designations – Another U.N. Agenda 21 Land Grab
If this is allowed to continue, you will witness the elimination of human presence on much of our American landscape!
World Heritage Area Sites – are under United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), a convention concerning the protection of the world cultural and national heritage and natural heritage.
The U.S. World Heritage site’s connection with the U.S. National Park Service
The Secretary of the Interior, through the National Park Service, is responsible for identifying and nominating U.S. sites to the World Heritage List. Proposed U.S. sites must either be federal property, such as national parks, or sites already designated as national historic landmarks or national natural landmarks.
National Heritage Area
A National Heritage Area is a site designated by the United States and intended to encourage historic preservation of the area. There are currently 49 National Heritage Areas, some of which use variations of the title, such as National Heritage Corridor. (Corridors are extensions of reserves and U.N. advocates claim millions of acres are needed to maintain large carnivores!)
National Heritage Areas (NHA) are not National Park Service units nor any type of federally owned or managed land. National Heritage Areas are administered by state governments, non-profit organizations, or other private corporations, but the National Park Service (an extension of the Department of Interior, or DOI) provides an advisory role with planning and financial assistance.
The sinister Department of Interior failed again, earlier this year, in another attempted LAND GRAB, but this time it was in Virginia under a proposed Heritage Area called the Crooked Road National Heritage Area. 19 counties in Southern Virginia were to be included in this National Heritage Area. This sure sounds like the deception that went on with the National Blueway System all over again. If this Crooked Road National Heritage Area designation would have taken place, it would effectively put the proposed “National Heritage Area” under the jurisdiction of the National Park Service and Department of the Interior.
The late Representative Gerald Solomon from New York wrote a letter on September 19, 1994, to his colleagues regarding a National Heritage Area program for the Park Service. His letter said:
“I urge you to defend property rights and strongly oppose the American Heritage Area Participation Program. The environmentalists advocating this bill have federal land use control as their primary objective. The bill wastes tax dollars that could be more appropriately spent on maintaining our national parks. Property rights defenders have legitimate concerns about the provision in the bill requiring localities to obtain approval by the Secretary of Interior for land use plans. Why spend $35 million on non-federal heritage areas when our national parks desperately need funds for maintenance and repair? Again, I ask you to defend property rights and oppose this bill.”
If you remember, the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission was one of the groups that signed the White River Watershed National Blueway nominations, which was a land and surface water grab which would have doomed 1/3 of Arkansas and 1/5 of Missouri. The Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission, which is part of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, is unaccountable and is working against the will of the people. All state funds to the Department of Arkansas Heritage need to be cut off completely as long as they are heavily involved with Sustainable Development (U.N. Agenda 21).
The mission of the Department of Arkansas Heritage is to identify Arkansas’s heritage and enhance the quality of life by the discovery, preservation, and presentation of the state’s cultural, historic and natural resources…
but in reality, a much deeper political philosophy of control.

Heritage Resource Agencies:
The Arkansas Heritage Program is a member of NatureServe, an international network of state natural heritage programs and conservation data centers. NatureServe members utilize the same data management methodology, enabling information regarding biological diversity to be exchanged across state and international boundaries.
NatureServe was formed in July 1999 when the Nature Conservancy and the Natural Heritage Network jointly established an independent organization to achieve their mutual goal of advancing the application of biodiversity information to conservation.
The Department of Arkansas Heritage is working in all 75 of Arkansas’ counties with the goal of snatching and listing at least 10 properties into the National Registry. This is a U.N. Agenda 21 Sustainable Development land grab program which must be defunded by our legislators.
The Arkansas Historic Preservation Program is part of the Agenda 21
The Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission is an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage. The “Strategic Planning” of the Arkansas Natural Heritage Commission is “Our strategic planning process concentrated on forces that will play a role in the sustainability and conservation of our state’s native landscapes, ecosystems, and biodiversity. A Visioning Forum with 30 colleagues and conservation partners generated key insights and recommendations that were assembled into trends and larger forces we used to develop a set of five-year priority strategies.

Sustainability: A U.N. Agenda 21 term for central planning, land acquisition, and control.
Some of the waste can be seen first hand by reviewing the amount of money in the appropriation bills below.
SB316/Act178 provided a total of $ 17,183,186 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
SB404/Act201 provided a total of $ 29,564,900 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
SB378/Act799 provided a total of $ 100,000 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
HB1597/Act732 provided a total of $ 15,000,000 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
HB1196/Act932 provided a total of $ 55,724,759 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
SB745/Act913 provided a total of $ 1,000,000 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
SB717/Act686 provided a total of $ 250,000 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
SB714/Act902 provided a total of $ 500,000 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
SB685/Act893 provided a total of $ 1,000,000 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
SB351/Act792 provided a total of $ 1,000,000 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
SB596/Act649 provided a total of $ 250,000 to Department of Arkansas Heritage
Total Appropriations for the Department of Arkansas Heritage is $121,572,845.
That’s almost 122 MILLION DOLLARS! Where is all this money going?
There must be some oversight from our Arkansas legislators to control these bureaucrats in government agencies that have gone against the will of the people. HB2015 would’ve helped with agency oversight, but the bill died in the House Committee on State Agencies and Governmental Affairs, 89th General Assembly, Regular Session, 2013.
Arkansas legislators have the ability to cut or eliminate the money in the appropriation bills to the various state and local agencies to get their attention.
