What an honor for our historic, Volunteer Park to have the backing of The Cultural Landscape Foundation to protect it in their Stewardship Landslide Program.
The goal of Landslide is to draw immediate and lasting attention to threatened landscapes and unique features, and to encourage informed community-based stewardship decisions.
Landslide raises public awareness of the rich diversity and interconnectedness of our shared, designed landscape heritage. Spanning over two centuries of American landscape design. Go here to see Volunteer Park’s special page on The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s website.
Landslide sparks debate—revealing the value of everyday places—encouraging informed community-based stewardship decisions. Landslide both highlights and monitors at-risk landscapes and annual thematic listings to save this heritage for future generations. Through web-based news, traveling exhibitions, and print publications, Landslide reveals the value of these often forgotten landscapes.
Landslide is designed to educate and thereby rally support at the local, state, and national levels by calling attention to endangered landscapes in communities nationwide. By creating an interactive, online resource, Landslide directs the public to local advocates working to safeguard each site. While many Landslide properties have been saved, others remain at risk or have been lost altogether.
Thank you TCL for your valuable support.
