What is the foundational knowledge that informs stewardship/interpretation of our landscape legacy? Drawing heavily on both the work of The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) with many of our collaborators, this lecture will highlight a diversity of resource types throughout the US and Canada, emphasizing stewardship strategies and opportunities for public engagement. The interface between historic preservation and natural systems in weighing decisions will provide an armature for new ideas and strategies.
