April is World Landscape Architecture Month

April 1 marked the beginning of World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM).

“This spring, as vaccines roll out and the world slowly begins to open again, people are rediscovering the open spaces around them—spaces landscape architects imagine, innovate and build,” says Torey Carter-Conneen, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) CEO. “This month, ASLA is celebrating by showing all the ways communities of all kinds are #GrowingTogether in the spaces that landscape architects create.”

This year’s theme: Growing Together

ASLA’s vision is “healthy, beautiful, and resilient places for all.” During #WLAM2021, we will show how landscape architecture projects embody that vision in all communities—communities of all colors, socioeconomic backgrounds and ability levels. We want to highlight how the spaces landscape architects create promote and facilitate people growing together with each other and with nature.

Ways To Participate

This year, ASLA members, landscape architects and the public can participate by:

  • Sending in community projects for our WLAM map.
  • Organizing a cleanup in partnership with Earth Day Network’s Great Global Cleanup Initiative.
  • Sharing Landscape Architecture posts on Social Media #GrowingTogether & #WLAM2021.
  • Watching for our Chapter Instagram Takeover Days.
  • Taking part in our “Growing the Future Together” Student Member Contest.
  • Using the WLAM to “Frame” Yourself on Facebook.

Updates and highlights will be posted throughout the month on ASLA’s web page.
