ASLA + NPS RTCA Partnership

 

Jump to: The Program  |  The Partnership  |  Twenty Years, Twenty Stories  |  More Resources

For over 20 years, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) and the National Park Service (NPS) have joined forces to help communities across the nation plan, design, and manage their natural cultural and recreation resources through the Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance (RTCA) Program.

ASLA volunteers from local chapters across the country provide pro-bono assistance to communities the National Park Service supports.

The partnership between NPS and ASLA provides communities with access to expert planners and designers that can turn their ideas into actions, supporting healthy communities and extending the missions of the National Park Service and ASLA to all Americans.

The Program

 The National Park Service Rivers, Trails, and Conservation Assistance program extends and expands the benefits of the National Park Service to communities throughout the nation.

When a community asks for assistance with a project through our application, National Park Service staff provide free, on-location facilitation and planning expertise. They draw from project experiences across the country and adapt best practices to a community's specific needs.

ASLA Chapters and members can learn more about the RTCA Program or apply at www.nps.gov/orgs/rtca
