The ASLA Heritage Circle is made up of ASLA Fund supporters who are demonstrating their commitment to the future of green and sustainable development by including the Fund in their estate plans. By doing so, they are helping assure that the Fund's public and professional educational programs promoting the values of landscape architecture in the natural and built environments will continue in the years and decades ahead. Members of the Heritage Circle are recognized on online the Heritage Circle Honor Roll.
