Father Nature

Know the earth. Conserve through creation is the message passed in the Olmsted family from father to son to son to son to son ....

Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) is the man who created the profession of landscape architecture and designed, among many others, NYC's Central Park, Boston's "Emerald Necklace," and Stanford University's campus. His son, FLO Jr., carried on the tradition and passed it to his son, John, who has been serving western natural glories for years. John's son, Alden, is now doing his part, filming the documentary of his father's (and his father's father ... and his father's father's father's) message.
