Advocacy Day 2017

ASLA Advocacy Day 2017
Infrastructure Header

Now is the time for landscape architects to educate policy makers on how the profession is leading community infrastructure design and development in neighborhoods across the country. From upgrading to a multimodal transportation network, to fixing our nation’s water management systems, to recognizing public lands and parks as critical infrastructure—landscape architects are restoring today’s crumbling infrastructure and creating tomorrow’s resilient systems.
