The conservation mission of the National Park Service includes the preservation of cultural landscapes. These historically significant places are often composed of character-defining vegetation that requires care with Preservation Horticulture. In this talk, Susan will examine the work of Preservation Horticulture in a variety of cultural landscapes within the national parks.

Susan Dolan is the National Park Service Bureau Historical Landscape Architect and Manager of the NPS Park Cultural Landscapes Program. Her responsibilities include developing, implementing and overseeing a service-wide landscape preservation pro-gram that includes research, planning, stewardship, education and technology development. ​

This lecture series was established by Bobbie’s family in recognition of her passion and dedication to preserving the legacy of Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver.

Guests are invited to stay for a reception following the lecture. Seating is limited so please RSVP to Karen Freeman at by November 15.
