Welcome to ASLA’s Virtual Career Day Center

Landscape architecture is a vibrant field comprised of design professionals making a difference in their communities and around the world. Featured video presentations will highlight a variety of career options within the profession. Just like live Career Day presentations, you'll hear from innovative landscape architects around the world who love their careers, have amazing hobbies, and love to travel. Presenters will talk about their journey to discover landscape architecture, their jobs, explorations in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and careers in design.

Watch the i+create=parks: Patricia Algara video (6:57), then access her Career Day presentation and learn how she combines her love for landscape architecture with her love of bees.
