The Living Landscape Observer offers commentary and information on landscape scale conservation, heritage preservation, and sustainable community development.

The goal of the Observer is to be at the crossroads of these emerging fields, reporting on the individuals, organizations and communities who are working to preserve a sense of place in large lived-in landscapes. This site and our newsletter will cover the latest in large landscape practice, feature places and projects, draw attention to people and politics, and provide opinionated observations.

The value of the Living Landscape Observer is in how well it meets the need of you who are working on the ground and in a place. You have the expertise and we want to hear from you. Contact Us.
