Washington, DC (January 19, 2012) - The Cultural Landscape Foundation (TCLF) announces the 2012 Landslide®: Landscape and Patronage and issues a call for nominations. In 2012, Landslide®, the annual thematic compendium of threatened and at-risk landscapes, will focus on visionary patrons and/or organizations and the sites they helped create. The goal is to celebrate their accomplishments and inspire new generations of patrons and philanthropists. The landscapes that surround us every dayshape our communities and the people living in them - help bring attention to these sites and the individuals who shaped their creation by nominating an at-risk cultural landscape. Landslide® is made possible by Presenting Sponsor The Davey Tree Expert Company, Education Partner the American Society of Landscape Architects and Media Partner Landscape Architecture magazine. 

American history is replete with visionary, inspired and willful patrons who supported and shaped beloved and nationally significant estates, parks, plazas and other civic amenities across the country. Without these committed people and organizations, many landscapes we prize would not have come into existence or survive today. Landslide®, first issued in 2003, has spotlighted more than 150 significant at-risk parks, gardens, horticultural features, and working landscapes-collectively, places that embody our shared landscape heritage. The 2012 sites will be featured on TCLF's Web site (www.tclf.org). Nominations can be submitted at www.tclf.org/landslide/nominate, the deadline for submission is May 31, 2012. 

Landslide® is one of TCLF's many initiatives that collectively highlight the importance of the nation's rich and diverse landscape legacy. TCLF also features What's Out There®, a free, searchable online database of the nation's designed landscapes; Pioneers of American Landscape Design® with extensive biographies and profiles of hundreds of practitioners, well-illustrated oral histories with significant landscape architects and encyclopedic publications; It Takes One® Stewardship Stories about impassioned advocates for sites; along with symposia, books, and lectures. 

"Each year 'Landslide' highlights different aspects of our landscape legacy to make that living heritage visible," said Charles A. Birnbaum, TCLF Founder and President. "In 2012 we spotlight patrons and the places they helped create, because patronage is intrinsic to the creation and stewardship of great designed landscapes." 

"Davey is proud to support and recognize notable landscapes and trees across the country. These spaces enhance our environment and provide us with numerous benefits that better our lives and communities everyday," Sandra Reid, Manager, Corporate Communications/Marketing, The Davey Tree Expert Company.
