Offered in partnership with the WASO Cultural Landscape Program, this workshop will provide students with the foundation of maintaining trees and shrubs to perpetuate the historic character of a cultural landscape. Participants will learn how to use Cultural Landscape Inventories and Reports to recognize historic vegetation, identify landscape deficiencies, prune trees and shrubs, replace historic plants, and optimize plant health.
Vanishing Treasures’ Special Topics workshops offer additional exposure to burning preservation topics facing our National Parks. They are offered in additional to the standard progression of Foundation, Core, and Materials courses.
