Stewardship of historic landscapes and the inclusion of disabled people traditionally clash: Why is this? How can more landscape architects learn the preservation skills to uphold the character and experience of cultural landscapes while improving accessibility? In this free, online presentation, experts will share successful methods used in projects that bridge the gap between historic preservation and accessibility; case studies from National Parks and Olmsted-designed landscapes will be explored.

This lecture is moderated by Ian Scherling, ASLA, PLA, Senior Associate, Landscape Architect at Sasaki. Panelists include: Alexa Vaughn, ASLA, FAAR; Laurie Matthews, ASLA; and Monica Rhodes, FAAR

The program is free, but registration is required. LA CES HSW credits available through the Boston Society for Landscape Architects for design practitioners.
