The California Garden and Landscape History Society is excited to announce that our organization is a 2023 recipient of the Governor’s Historic Preservation Awards! If you would like to view the ceremony online, you can find it at OHP's Facebook page ( or YouTube Channel ( Our organization would not have been selected as a recipient without your hard work and support along the way.

Awarded by the California Office of Historic Preservation and California State Parks, the award is the only state-sponsored program that recognizes the efforts of historic preservation organizations in the state. It is intended to celebrate community-based, “grass roots” efforts to document and promote the state’s unique and varied heritage.

In the award decision, CGLHS was cited for its “fundamental principle that people will protect the historical and cultural landscapes and gardens they have learned to understand and appreciate.” With our quarterly journal, Eden, the Tours and Talks program, and various partnerships across the state, we are proud to have the recognition of the state in our efforts and look forward to the various initiatives of our future.

Along with fellow recipients, the Palm Springs Preservation Foundation, Historic Shipyard at Pier 70, Rooted in Richmond Tour App, Save Our Heritage Organisation, and the Ah-Ha’ Mut-ta-ti’ e Traditional Cultural Property Report, we will receive the award at an in-person ceremony on Tuesday, February 27th, 1:00-4:00pm in Sacramento. CGLHS is 4th on the agenda. Remarks will be given at the ceremony by the Director of State Parks, the State Librarian, and State Historic Preservation Officer. The event will also be livestreamed.
