The Cultural Landscape Foundation
Grounds for Democracy highlights threatened cultural landscapes throughout the nation that are key to remembering, contextualizing, and interpreting the struggles for civil and human rights in the United States. Although these sites are of immense cultural and historical significance, with most of them listed in the National Register of Historic Places, they are nonetheless threatened by impending development, industrial activity, dwindling funds for upkeep, outright neglect, or the forces of nature itself.
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-based news stories, travelling exhibitions, and print publications, Landslide reveals the value of these often forgotten landscapes.Learn More
