Washington, D.C. – This April the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) will celebrate World Landscape Architecture Month by highlighting the work of its members, chapter by chapter. Starting on April 1, for the next 49 days, a different chapter will take over ASLA’s Instagram each day to show the best of the profession from around the country.

ASLA also asks landscape architects and the public to post pictures of their favorite landscape architect-designed spaces with a card that reads, “This is Landscape Architecture,” tagged  #WLAM2017, on social media. Anyone can download a “This is Landscape Architecture” card at asla.org/wlam or find one in the April issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine.

“ASLA and its chapters are excited to showcase landscape architects’ work in April and beyond,” said Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA, executive vice president and CEO of ASLA. “We’re looking forward to seeing all aspects of the profession, everything from iconic spaces like Central Park to sketches from students.”

In addition to the Instagram takeover, ASLA will share other pictures with #WLAM2017 on its Facebook and Twitter pages.
