The Emerald Necklace: restoring the vision and preserving the Olmstead legacy
Registration begins April 2
The Emerald Necklace is one of our Commonwealth’s most significant treasures. Designed by Frederick Law Olmsted, long revered as, “The Father of Landscape Architecture” the historic Emerald Necklace is a six-mile linear park system that wends its way from Boston’s Back Bay Fens to Franklin Park in Dorchester. Speaker, Jeanine Knox, explores the history of the Emerald Necklace, the unique landscapes of each park as well as the vision and effort it took to create them, and the role of the Emerald Necklace Conservancy in preserving and protecting this treasure for generations to come.
