Welcome to Lord & Schryver Conservancy
The Lord and Schryver Conservancy grew out an increasing awareness in the Salem community about the work of professional landscape designers Elizabeth Lord and Edith Schryver and a concern for the ultimate fate of their garden at Gaiety Hollow, the tour de force of their life work. The ultimate goal was to acquire the home property of Lord and Schryver and bring it into the public domain. Our mission is to “preserve and interpret the legacy of Lord and Schryver to promote a greater understanding of their contribution to Northwest landscape architecture.” The L&S Conservancy acquired 501 (c)3 status as a community-based non-profit in 2005. We are affiliated with the national Garden Conservancy and a partner with the Oregon Cultural Trust.
