REGISTRATION OPEN: PreK-12 Design Event to Kick Off the School Year

Landscape architects are taking the world by storm by designing everything from school communities, to skateboard parks, healing gardens, zoos, resorts, museums, aquariums, and theme parks like Disney World and Legoland.

The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) wants to introduce students to the exciting world of landscape architecture with its first-ever PreK-12 Summit for students. The two-day virtual Summit, entitled DREAM BIG with Design, is the perfect kick-off event for the 2021-2022 school year.
