The green spaces of Washington, D.C., owe a huge debt to the Olmsted Brothers firm, run by the sons of legendary landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted, according to Arleyn Levee, a director of the Friends of Fairsted (the name Olmsted gave to his Brookline property, which combined his home and office). Levee, who also is a landscape historian and preservation consultant, specializes in the work of Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and his brother, John Charles. At 6 p.m. Thursday, she will present a lecture on “The Enduring Design Legacy of Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. in the Nation’s Capital” at Wheelock College, 43 Hawes St. It is part of a pair of lectures being presented by the Friends of Fairsted. Admission is free, but seating and parking are limited. For a reservation, e-mail friendsoffairsted@gmail.com or call 617-566-1689, ext. 265. - Andreae Downs
