Olmsted in the 21st Century:
Restore, Recreate, Reimagine or Repurpose?

James’ topic is timely, Frederick Law Olmsted (FLO) will be celebrated around the country in 2022. We will honor his 200th birthday!

As Executive Director of St. Andrews Botanic Garden, James was responsible for renewal in all aspects of the organization’s guest experience, outreach, and educational programs, particularly by welcoming previously unreached communities.
