The Board of Directors of the Olmsted Network is comprised of nationally-recognized leaders, thinkers, practitioners and philanthropists dedicated to exploring and celebrating Frederick Law Olmsted and his legacy.
Our organization was founded in 1980 by a group of advocates dedicated to promoting and preserving the work and principles of Frederick Law Olmsted. Since that time, we have fostered stewardship, championed scholarship and fought to protect these irreplaceable places from the threats of disrepair and development.
