Sarah Earley

Bloomfield Hills, MI
In the process of completing course work in landscape design, Sarah Earley realized that her adopted hometown of Detroit, Mi held one of the unpolished gems of Frederick Law Olmsted's portfolio of urban parks. Having been born in Boston, and lived in cities across the U.S., including New York, she was quite familiar with Olmsted’s body of work. Concerned that too few Detroiters recognized the historic and cultural significance of Olmsted's only "island" park in the Detroit River between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, in 2004 she founded the Belle Isle Women's Committee. That organization raises funds on a project basis to help restore and preserve Belle Isle. She mobilized influential women across Southeast Michigan to raise awareness of the need to preserve this gem.
