Los Angeles Landscape History is the nucleus of an ongoing project to study the historical ecology of the Los Angeles Basin and environs funded by the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation. The outcome of the first phase of this project was the report “Historical Ecology of the Los Angeles River and Watershed” (HELAR), released in June 2020. In the ongoing Phase II, scholars from California State University (CSU) Long Beach, CSU Los Angeles and CSU Northridge have joined with the Phase I team from University of California Los Angeles and the USC Department of History and the USC Spatial Sciences Institute to reconstruct the first-ever three-dimensional model of the LA Basin historical ecology and landscapes at the neighborhood scale.
