For the 12th annual HALS Challenge, the Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) invites you to document historic Black landscapes. Black people have built and shaped the American landscape in immeasurable ways. Examining these histories and spaces will expand our understanding of America’s past and future. 
The HALS Short Format History guidelines and digital template may be downloaded from the National Park Service's HALS website
To enter the HALS Challenge, please email your completed short format HALS history to by July 31, 2021.
For more information on the 2021 HALS Challenge, please see The Field. Each month, historic Black landscapes that are in the process of being or have already been documented for HALS have been showcased in The Field. The HALS Subcommittee also hosted a webinar in February on the 2021 HALS Challenge theme.
