Protect A Legacy of Olmsted Design

Protect A Legacy of Olmsted Design

A Viewshed for Future Generations

Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. envisioned a cultivated garden surrounded by natural areas nestled in an agricultural landscape, free from the noise and disruption of development. Today this vista is threatened. As central Florida continues to develop and rooftops replace orange trees, we stand to lose the tranquility and awe-inspiring vistas that define the Bok Tower Gardens experience.

The open lands in the view before you are not all protected. To meet this threat, we have developed an action plan for acquiring and managing the lands surrounding the Gardens.

You can be part of safeguarding this National Historic Landmark. Your gift will ensure the future of this magnificent treasure, preserve our heritage, and protect habitats for endangered plants and animals.

Gifts of all sizes support our land preservation efforts. Make your gift online, leave a lasting legacy in your estate, or give a gift that makes an immediate impact.
