The Olmsted Center for Landscape Preservation provides timely landscape preservation maintenance assistance to parks and historic properties throughout the nation. The Olmsted Center works in close collaboration with site staff to identify landscape maintenance needs and recommends emergency and cyclic preservation work to halt and mitigate landscape deterioration. As a result of this collaboration, management objectives are met, the condition of significant cultural landscapes is improved, and historic integrity is preserved.
