Multi Park Landscape Preservation Teams

In collaboration with parks and historic properties, the Olmsted Center assists with addressing critical cultural landscape maintenance. These partnerships, unique within the National Park Service, help to share staff expertise to effectively improve the condition of landscapes. At the request of site managers, the Olmsted Center organizes multi-park teams of landscape maintenance and resource management specialists to assist with field projects. Every project accomplishes critical landscape preservation maintenance, provides training for participants and resident site staff, and strengthens the network between practitioners.
