ASLA’s RFQs, Opportunities, and Events page provides information on everything from calls for papers to competitions. Below, we highlight opportunities that are closing soon. Anyone who would like to share an opportunity may submit information online.

RiverWalk West Design Competition
Deadline: May 30, 2023
The City of Calgary has announced the first stage of the RiverWalk West Design Competition, the Request for Pre-Qualification (RFPQ), is now open and accepting applications. Calgary’s RiverWalk pathway system connects pedestrians and cyclists through the heart of the city and to our beloved Bow River. The time has come to redevelop the next segment, creating a continuous, world-class active modes connection linking Fort Calgary to the west end of downtown. This exciting project, known as RiverWalk West, presents a unique challenge for eligible designers and engineers to develop creative solutions that complete the downtown river promenade.

Call for Nominations: Renewable Natural Resources Foundation Awards
Deadline: June 1, 2023
The Renewable Natural Resources Foundation (RNRF) has three annual awards to recognize outstanding achievements in the renewable natural resources fields:
  • The Sustained Achievement Award recognizes a long-term contribution and commitment to the protection and conservation of natural resources by an individual.
  • The Outstanding Achievement Award recognizes a project, publication, piece of legislation, or similar concrete accomplishment that occurred during the three years prior to nomination for the award.
  • The Excellence in Journalism Award honors and encourages excellence in print journalism about natural resources. The award recognizes work by an individual, group, or organization for both print and digital media.

Request for Input: Survey on Managing Trees for Storm Events
Open through late June
Urban forestry professionals are invited to participate in a survey about urban forest management and storms. This TREE Fund-sponsored research led by Mysha Clarke, faculty at the University of Florida, and Ph.D. Candidate Stephanie Cadaval is important to better understand professionals' risk perceptions, communication needs, opportunities for collaboration, and general challenges with managing urban forests for storm events. This survey specifically targets urban forestry and arboriculture professionals who work in the Southern and Eastern Regions of the US (Forest Service Regions 8 and 9).
