Updates from ASLA


ASLA Fund Spring Campaign

Central Park, New York City / MargaretW,

This month, landscape architects around the world celebrate the 200th birthday of the founder of the profession of landscape architecture, Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903).

Today, join us in our celebration by continuing the legacy of the Olmsted family and ASLA’s commitment to the profession by joining the Founders Club – a new monthly giving program that allows the ASLA Fund to continue our mission of investing in global, social, and environmental change through the art and science of landscape architecture.

Your ongoing monthly support will:

  • Raise awareness of landscape architecture amongst the public, policy makers, and media
  • Engage K-12 students in STEM programs that emphasize landscape architecture
  • Continue the esteemed ASLA Professional and Student Awards
  • Support Women of Color on their paths to licensure
  • Send landscape architecture students to the ASLA Conference
  • Generate research and white papers that support your work
  • And much more...

The Olmsteds’ work reflects a vision of American communities and American society still relevant today—a commitment to visually compelling and accessible green space that restores and nurtures the body and spirit of all people, regardless of their economic circumstances.” (
