About Us

The mission of the Foundation for Landscape Studies is to foster an active understanding of the importance of place in human life.

The Foundation for Landscape Studies attempts to teach the intrinsic value of all places by virtue of their natural features, environmental qualities, design, cultural history, and present use. We believe that even the most ordinary landscapes have significance and are as interesting to study as the most prestigious historic gardens.

The foundation initiates collaborative projects with other organizations, institutions, and individuals that promote and advance landscape history and historic landscape design, theory and practice. Through these associations and independent activities, it serves as a center of communication and collaboration. The foundation does not consider unsolicited grant applications.
