Friday, October 20 – Outstanding Ojai, California

The Cultural Landscape Foundation is sponsoring an excursion to Ojai, California on Friday, October 20. The village-like city of Ojai, set in a valley in the Topatopa Mountains northwest of Los Angeles, is the destination for The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s Annual Excursion. This annual tour, which usually sells out months in advance, is limited to 50 people. Landscape architect Pamela Burton, FASLA, is curating this daylong event, which includes visits to a selection of private residential and agricultural estates, including Burton’s own splendid property. Pictured below is her design for the Helm residence in Ojai. The day will be punctuated by a sumptuous luncheon. Never before have all of these exquisite properties been accessible on one tour.

The day concludes with a reception at the A + D Architecture and Design Museum>Los Angeles where The Landscape Architecture of Lawrence Halprin, a traveling photographic exhibition about the life and work of landscape architect Lawrence Halprin (1916-2009), will be on view and where we will honor a 2017 Stewardship Excellence Award winner.

The tour, transportation, refreshments, lunch, and a post-tour reception are included. Tickets are $1,000 per person and proceeds provide vital support to TCLF’s year-round educational programs. Air fare to California not included.

Tickets for the Friday evening reception only are also available at $95 per person.
