NELDHA’s Annual Tea

Tuesday, October 26, 2010
Special Guest Speaker Alan Banks
Supervisory Park Ranger at “Fairsted” Frederick Law Olmsted National Historic Site

“The Olmsted Legacy and its influence on today’s landscape design professionals”

Alan Banks extensively researched the Olmsted firm’s involvement in over 1,200 projects throughout Massachusetts, ranging from expansive parks to intimate private gardens. Among Olmsted’s greatest achievements is the six-mile Emerald Necklace drainage project that became a nationally acclaimed landscape masterpiece. Olmsted’s humanitarian philosophy and theories for land use are still persuasive arguments for today’s landscape designers.
