The Oil Region National Heritage Area (ORNHA) is a federal and state-designated program covering all of Venango County and the City of Titusville, Hydetown Borough, and Oil Creek Township of Crawford County. The program is focused on natural and cultural resource preservation, historic interpretation and education, tourism, and economic development.

The ORNHA’s managing entity, Oil Region Alliance (ORA), is currently in the early stages of preparing a Strategic Plan for the ORNHA that will include recommendations on how to better achieve its mission. As part of this process, ORA is soliciting the public’s opinions for consideration in preparing those plan recommendations.
