Thomas Herrera-Mishler: The Remarkable Revitalization of Olmsted Parks
Seattle and Buffalo, N.Y. are blessed to have two of America's best park systems designed by the groundbreaking Olmsted landscape architecture firm. Thomas Herrera-Mishler, President and CEO of Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy, will share the astounding success story of restoring Buffalo's Olmsted parks and surrounding neighborhoods. He will discuss how Seattle, too, could return its historic parks to prime condition.

Buffalo boasts the first planned park system in the US. Since arriving six years ago, Herrera-Mishler has established a national reputation for leading revitalization of this famous but long neglected Olmsted park system. Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy now maintains and restores this treasured natural and cultural asset, through a successful public-private partnership modeled after New York City's Central Park Conservancy. BOPC is a not-for-profit organization 1,000 members strong.

Proposition 1 aroused public concern about the survival of Seattle's declining parks. On its heels, this evening with Thomas Herrera-Michler promises to bring local park lovers ideas and hope for safeguarding Seattle's irreplaceable Olmsted legacy.

The lecture is preceded by a no-host reception at 6 pm and showing a brief, inspiring film "The Best Planned City in the World."

Presented by Seattle Parks Foundation with co-hosts Friends of Seattle's Olmsted Parks http://www.seattleolmsted.org and Volunteer Park Trust http://volunteerparktrust.org.
