What's out there® Cultural Landscapes Guide

National Park Service

In Partnership with the National Park Service

The What’s Out There Cultural Landscapes Guides are produced as a partnership between the National Park Service and The Cultural Landscape Foundation in acknowledgement of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the NPS in 1916.

In recognition of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the National Park Service (NPS), The Cultural Landscape Foundation and NPS are partnering to document nationally significant landscapes in five cities. The second of five interactive online guides, the What’s Out There Cultural Landscapes Guide for New York City was preceded by a guide to Philadelphia (March 2016), and will be followed by guides to cultural landscapes in Boston, MA (Spring 2017), Richmond, VA (Fall 2017), and Baltimore, MD (Spring 2018).
