Explore Philadelphia's iconic landscapes and little-known places during What's Out There Weekend Philadelphia. On May 18th and 19th, The Cultural Landscape Foundation will host free, expert-led tours at over two-dozen historically significant examples of landscape architecture in the area, including hidden gems in Fairmount Park, the Beaux Arts grounds of the Rodin Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Colonial Revival efforts of the National Park Service, the groundbreaking Modernist expressions of Society Hill, and the Postmodernist plazas of Venturi Scott Brown. The tours will teach people about city shaping, landscape architecture and the design history of places they may pass every day but don't necessarily know about. Learn more at http://tclf.org/landscapes/wot-weekend-Philly2012.

The tours will be introduced on Friday, May 17th with a symposium co-hosted with the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, entitled Civic Horticulture. Registration and details about speakers and schedule are here: http://tclf.org/event/civic-horticulture-conference-philadelphia. There are student discounts available! There will also be a launch reception at PHS's Pop Up Garden Thursday night and a post-conference reception hosted at OLIN on Friday evening.
