Description
After fifteen years as the coordinator of the National Park Service Historic Landscape Initiative,

Foundation (TCLF). TCLF is now the world’s leading cultural landscape advocacy organization,
and has brought awareness to, restoration of, and literally saved countless important
landscapes worldwide. His many recognitions include The Rome Prize in Historic Preservation
and Conservation and the ASLA medal. While “historic landscapes” may be Charles Birnbaum’s
obvious calling card, his work to shepherd the practice of Historic Landscape Preservation into
the modern era makes him one of our most interesting and far-sighted landscape practitioners.
