Become Informed

It is essential that the public become informed about the importance of the Herbert Bayer Earthworks. There are many area residents who do not understand the site’s historic and international significance. Public support on a national level could encourage regulatory agencies to look at functional rather than prescriptive solutions. An outpouring of support will also strengthen a National Historic Landmark nomination, especially since the site must qualify as “exceptionally significant.”


Get Involved

Supporters are working to establish a Friends of the Herbert Bayer Earthworks advisory committee. If you would like to serve on this committee or show your support for the site in other ways, contact:
