Donate to the ACE Mentor Legacy Project

ACE Mentor

Here’s a great way to contribute to the Chicago community, save shipping your products home after the ASLA EXPO, and get recognition at the meeting!

In 2008, ASLA introduced the Legacy Project as a gift to the host city of the Annual Meeting and EXPO.  The host chapter ASLA members team up with the local affiliate of the ACE Mentor Program to design a project using products donated by our generous EXPO exhibitors to be installed after the meeting.

The Curie Courtyard Project will include the design of an underutilized space for students on the south west side of Chicago’s Curie Metro High School. The Curie Courtyard Project was selected because it presents a unique opportunity for both Curie and ACE Mentorship students to collaborate and develop design solutions for a challenging space that is visible to more than 3,000 students and administrators daily.

The Curie Courtyard Project will give students of the ACE Mentorship Program the chance to give back to the school that has hosted past design workshops and events for their other projects over the years. ASLA volunteers will hold multiple design charrettes, coordinate the efforts of volunteering partners throughout the city, and educate the students about the landscape architecture process, from concept development through installation.

Visit ASLA 2015 Annual Meeting and EXPO [] for a complete list of products needed.
If you are interested in donating to the project, please contact Mary Patton and Nikolas Davis, Illinois Legacy Project Co-chairs, at

We will recognize the Legacy Project volunteers, students, and product donors during the Opening General Session on Saturday, November 7, at 8:00 am, at the McCormick Place, Lakeside Center and in a special ad in Landscape Architecture Magazine following the meeting.
