ASLA, as part of the LWCF Coalition, released the following statement after the announcement of the Great American Outdoors Act - new legislation to permanently fund the Land and Water Conservation Fund and implement provisions of the Restore Our Parks Act.

“The Land and Water Conservation Fund is a critical federal program that helps landscape architects plan, design, and build world-class community parks and recreation centers. These are places where people come together to learn, grow, and share community experiences they can’t anywhere else.” said Wendy Miller, FASLA, President of the American Society of Landscape Architects. “ASLA has long supported full and permanent funding for LWCF and seeing this bill move forward – along with a measure to fix the crumbling infrastructure in our national parks – is truly a great win, not only for landscape architects but for communities across the nation."
