The ASLA Public Awareness Campaign has Green Infrastructure as its theme for February - March. Landscape architects work with natural ecosystems to create sustainable environments. This attached flyer describes and illustrates some of the work by landscape architects that includes park systems, using nature to manage water from storms, creating wildlife habitat and corridors, and making the built environment greener through urban forestry, tree canopies, green roofs, and green walls. Green infrastructure solutions can be viewed at asla.org/animations.
The ASLA Public Awareness Campaign theme for December-January was Transportation so the ASLA Public Practice Advisory Committee created a flyer to describe what Landscape Architects in Transportation do. Their work includes scenic byways and highways, erosion control and revegetation, visual impact assessment, and planting and irrigation that integrates streets and roadways into local settings. Where they work, what kind of projects they plan, design, and manage, how they benefit communities, and how they make a difference is described.
