This Workshop is intended to be useful for a broad audience, ranging from architects and landscape architects to historic commissioners to city staff.  It will provide information related to identification, definitions, documentation and assessment for National Register nominations, application of the NPS’ Guidelines for the Treatment of Cultural Landscapes, the Historic American Landscapes Survey [HALS], and a review of the various inventory, treatment and maintenance documents typically prepared for a variety of cultural landscape documentation and treatment projects.   The Workshop will use case studies of properties in California to provide examples of the specific application of the course components.

This Workshop will be held outdoors (mostly in a covered area) and include walking tours and site-visit at Rancho Los Cerritos. Please check the weather forecast and wear layers and comfortable shoes!
