John Yeon Landscape: Design, Conservation, Activism

John Yeon Landscape - Design, Conservation, Activism

John Yeon (1910-1994) devoted his life to designing and preserving the spectacular terrain of the Pacific Northwest. John Yeon Landscape explores his roles as planner, landscape architect, and conservation activist. The son of a lumber baron who raised the money for and oversaw the construction of one of America's first scenic highways, the Columbia River Gorge Highway, Yeon tackled conservation causes with the eye of a landscape designer. He single-handedly protected two of the most prominent features of the Oregon Coast: Neahkahnie Mountain and Chapman Point.
