Please join the Cleveland Park Historical Society and the Tregaron Conservancy for a talk by preservation landscape architect Glenn Stach: `Preserving Cultural Landscapes: More Than Eaves and Leaves` Tuesday, April 5th at 7:30 pm at the Cleveland Park Congregational Church, 3400 Lowell Street, NW. This event is free and open to everyone, but please register at http://www.clevelandparkhistoricalsociety.org so we can be sure we have enough seating.

About the talk: Over 20 years ago, national preservation policies were restructured to address more holistically the future of historic sites and districts. Why then do we remain principally focused on the preservation of buildings, often overlooking the systems of the built and natural landscape? This talk reveals the value and necessity of addressing the broader cultural landscape in planning for the future of historic sites and districts.
Refreshments will be served. We hope to see you there!
