Each year, The Cultural Landscape Foundation spotlights at-risk landscapes in hopes of developing enough political and community support to save them. These annual campaigns, known as "Landslide," are themed according to the most pressing needs of the time.
This year, GARDEN DESIGN is once again an educational partner with Landslide, the Cultural Landscape Foundation's annual thematic compendium of threatened and at-risk landscape. Landslide started in 2003 and has spotlighted more than 150 at-risk parks, gardens, horticultural features, and working landscapes.
