October is almost here, which means the holidays are right around the corner. It’s never too early to start shopping for beautiful and purposeful present for friends and family. And “The Landscape I Love” calendar from The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) makes a great gift for those who love beautiful photography and are interested in unique landscapes.
Focusing both on at-risk sites and the passionate, visionary individuals working tirelessly and often unheralded to raise awareness about them, the 12-month calendar features photographs of the 12 at-risk sites from across the country and the stewards working to protect them.
Always a work of art, this calendar promotes TCLF’s Landslide program. The goal of Landslide is to draw immediate and lasting attention to threatened landscapes and unique features. Landslide sparks debate—revealing the value of everyday places—encouraging informed community-based stewardship decisions. Landslide both highlights and monitors at-risk landscapes and annual thematic listings to save this heritage for future generations. Through web features, travelling exhibits, and print publications, Landslide reveals the value of these often forgotten landscapes.
The original photography in the calendar was produced as part of TCLF’s annual compendium of significant at-risk parks, gardens, and horticultural features—Landslide. The calendar features striking images by award-winning photographers Allison Barnes, Tom Brownold, Roger Foley, C. Bruce Forster, Ross Gordon, Craig Grant, Thomas A. Heinz, Michael Carroll Mettler, Charles J. Mintz, Jeannie Frey Rhodes, and Allen Russ.
Calendars will be shipped starting November 1.
