Passport Stamp Program
The many stories of our heritage are told in museums, historic sites, and natural areas throughout the Champlain Valley region. As a partner of the U.S. National Park Service (NPS), the CVNHP participates in the NPS Passport Stamp Program where visitors log their experiences at parks, landmarks and heritage areas across the country. In preparation for the 100th anniversary of the NPS in 2016, the CVNHP produced a commemorative Stamp Cancellation Passport for 11 locations throughout the national heritage area. These sites represent the arts, outdoor recreation, land conservation, military history, commerce, natural history, wildlife conservation, and other aspects of the CVNHP.
The CVNHP uses a custom-designed passport to promote each year’s interpretive theme. In 2019, the Conservation & Community Interpretive Theme was showcased throughout the International Year of the Salmon. In 2020, the CVNHP is focusing on our Making of Nations theme, highlighting the Centennial of Women’s Suffrage in the United States.
So, get your passport stamped for exploration, inspiration and adventure!
