Exposures–The Annual Awards Issue
In this issue of Exposures, we focus on our marquis program and annual event, the chapter Design Awards. The event recognizes projects by chapter landscape architects that demonstrate excellence, careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environment. Award recipients are announced at the ASLA Colorado Design Awards Event held at the Denver Four Seasons Hotel in early December.

You've seen references in the trade publications about various facilities that are LEED certified, have received marketing pieces proudly announcing that a convention center or hotel has achieved certification, and maybe even met an individual who has earned LEED Green Associate accreditation. Undoubtedly, LEED is a good thing—but do you really know what it means and, more important, what it means to you? Click the link above to learn more.
Announcing the Start of WASLA’s Unnamed Blog
We are excited to see the start of this blog. The WASLA Blog will help to keep the landscape architecture community informed, provide volunteer opportunities, and demonstrate the value of landscape architecture in Washington State. Our posts will cover a range of topics, including WASLA events, member activities, noteworthy Washington projects, and issues relevant to Washington landscape architects.
Our first challenge is finding a name. Some ideas include LaBlog, Pseudotsuga, Wash Land, The Log, WASLA Blog, and so on. As you can see, we are not satisfied yet. If you have a great idea for a name submit one via the link above as a comment for our consideration.
