Medal of Excellence: National Park Service

The National Park Service (NPS) will receive the Landscape Architecture Medal of Excellence. The award recognizes significant contributions to landscape architecture policy, research, education, project planning and design, or a combination of these items. Landscape architects have a deep connection to the NPS, and ASLA members were instrumental in the passage of the National Park Service Organic Act, which established the NPS in 1916. Today, iconic parks and recreational spaces cover 84 million acres of land for the public’s enjoyment. The NPS Centennial is a perfect opportunity to recognize the agency’s service to preserve America’s natural and cultural resources, while inspiring the next generation of park stewards to experience and value public lands.
