Thanks to our sponsors, kids ride ponies, plant seedlings, watch sheep get sheared, pet farm animals and much, much more!

Screening & Lecture: Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America
Saturday, April 28, 2018 • 7:00pm-8:30pm
Leach Botanical Garden, Portland, OR

Presented by Laurence Cotton, originator and principal researcher. Doors open at 6:30pm. With gorgeous cinematography, creative animation, and compelling commentary, Frederick Law Olmsted: Designing America presents the biography of a man whose parks and preservation work are an essential part of American life. Olmsted co-designed Central Park, headed the first Yosemite commission, led the campaign to protect Niagara Falls, designed the U.S. Capitol Grounds, and planned Boston’s “Emerald Necklace.” In 1903, his sons brought the Olmsted vision to Portland, resulting in a comprehensive plan for the city's neighborhoods, regional parks, scenic boulevards, and pedestrian pathways. Prior to viewing the film, Cotton will briefly describe the path that led to its creation. Afterward, he’ll discuss Olmsted’s life and career, and the legacy of Olmsted designs across America.

Laurence Cotton, writer, historian, and filmmaker, has worked in public radio as an independent producer, an executive producer and host of nationally syndicated Cambridge Forum. $15/person ($10 for Leach Garden Friends/Members). Reservations required for everyone. Limit: 40.
