In this illustrated talk, Garden Conservancy Chairman & CEO James Brayton Hall will examine what America's gardens say about our culture, and how new approaches to garden preservation pioneered by the Garden Conservancy are helping protect and document these living works of art for future generations.

Several examples of the preservation of West Coast gardens will be highlighted, including the rehabilitation of the gardens surrounding the former prison on Alcatraz Island, a ten-year project done in partnership with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and the National Park Service.

This program is presented as part of the California Garden & Landscape History Society Lecture Series.
