Join ASLA & Earthday.org for WLAM's Great Global Cleanup

Pollution is a constant issue in public open spaces—causing flooding, spreading illness, contaminating water sources, and at the root of a myriad of other problems that landscape architects face in their work. This April, as part of World Landscape Architecture Month, ASLA is partnering with Earthday.org to take part in the Great Global Cleanup initiative.

The goal is simple—organize as many local, pandemic-conscious cleanups as possible. ASLA chapters, student chapters, and members can all take part. 

  • Organize a cleanup. We’re hoping that every chapter can host at least one cleanup in April, but any member can take the lead. When organizing a cleanup, be sure to comply with all federal and local safety and health guidelines related to COVID-19. 
  • Join a cleanup. Many cleanups have already been organized across the country. See where you can join in
  • Register your cleanup on our portal.Visit the portal to register your cleanup and keep track of your progress! The data you enter will be aggregated with cleanups from across the country. 
  • Have a question? Ask! We can get you in touch with our partners to help set up a cleanup in your area.
