In 2003, TCLF launched the Pioneers of American Landscape Design® initiative in partnership with the ASLA, with the goal of documenting, collecting, and preserving the unique, first-hand perspectives of renowned landscape practitioners. To date, TCLF has produced seventeen Pioneers Oral Histories; the most recent is with the Santa Monica and Ojai, CA-based landscape architect Pamela Burton, FASLA.

TCLF is in the process of producing a Pioneers Oral History with landscape architect Julie Bargmann, the winner of the inaugural Cornelia Hahn Oberlander International Landscape Architecture Prize.
