ASLA Launches National Landscape Architecture Month

The American Society of Landscape Architects and its local chapters are organizing a series of events during April to celebrate National Landscape Architecture Month. The theme of this year's events is "Healthy Living Through Design."

"Landscape architects will join across the country during the month of April to educate the public as to how their profession promotes Healthy Living Through Design. They’ll hold public events showcasing just what can be done through hands-on work with the public, speaking engagements, and design charrettes."

"With the theme of Healthy Living Through Design, National Landscape Architecture Month (NLAM) 2013 will spur a country-wide discussion about the profession’s role in the most important issues facing our country, such as reducing childhood obesity, cleaning the air, greening the streets, and urging people to get out and take advantage of the great parks and landscapes available to them."

"To find out how you can celebrate the upcoming NLAM, contact your local chapter."
