Top Award for Historic Landscape Survey

The Historic American Landscape Survey (HALS) for the Empire Ranch submitted in July 2016 has been selected by the National Park Service as the winner of the 2016 HALS Challenge. Twelve University of Arizona students prepared a preliminary survey document which was finalized by landscape architects Helen Erickson and Gina Chorover and landscape historian Robin Lothrop Pinto.

The report will be cataloged in the Library of Congress and will be digitally available to anyone interested in historic landscapes or ranching history in the southwest.
