Philadelphia Flower Show
While Temple University’s Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture explores the Hopewell Furnace National Historical Site at the Philadelphia Flower Show, Temple University Press, Temple University Libraries and Temple University Ambler invite visitors to travel through the 200-year history of the Fairmount Park system with the authors of City in a Park.
“After the Blast: Recollecting Roots and Resources at Hopewell Furnace,” presented by the Department of Landscape Architecture and Horticulture, distills the preserved industrial landscape into a 33-foot by 23-foot exhibit that will take visitors on a journey through this once thriving, nearly self-sustainable 19th century rural “iron plantation.”
The awe-inspiring vistas of Yosemite. The epic, craggy maze of the Grand Canyon.
Mention “national parks” to anyone and these are the images that likely come to mind. Preserving the natural heritage of the United States is critically important. Protecting our historical and cultural heritage is equally critical.
