Barnes Butte Recreation Area Design Charrette

Join our design team! ASLA Oregon and the National Park Service’s Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program (NPS RTCA) are partnering to create a conceptual plan for the Barnes Butte Recreation Area, a 460 acre park and open-space project in Prineville, Oregon.

ASLA Oregon invites members to participate in a two-day charrette September 27-28, 2019 in Prineville. We are assembling a team of up to 12 professionals. Our work will include a site visit to Barnes Butte open-space and a day-long charrette with key stakeholders and community members to develop conceptual designs for the park. The charrette will conclude with a public presentation and community open house on Saturday night.

The charrette provides a rare opportunity for Oregon’s landscape architecture community to gather, learn from each other, and lend our expertise and abilities to the beginnings of this regionally significant recreation and conservation area in Crook County.

Are you an experienced park planner or trail designer? An expert meeting facilitator? Great with graphics? We are seeking participants with a diversity of knowledge, skills and abilities at all stages of their careers. Participation in the charrette will be based on a competitive selection process. Students, emerging professionals, mid-career and experienced professionals are all encouraged to apply. Applicants must be ASLA Oregon members in good standing. Meals for both days and overnight accommodations on Friday and Saturday nights, September 27th and 28th will be provided through the generosity of the City of Prineville and the Prineville community.

To apply, complete our application form and attach a cover letter and a current resume. Professional Member Applications Due: August 16th.
