As part of our 125th anniversary celebrations, ASLA is now a proud sponsor of WAMU, the NPR station for Washington, D.C.

Listeners of Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and 1A on WAMU will hear periodic mentions of ASLA and landscape architecture over the next few weeks, all the way through World Landscape Architecture Month in April.

“We want policymakers, public servants, and business leaders in Washington to know that landscape architects are uniquely qualified to design the solutions America needs in the 21st century,” said ASLA CEO Torey Carter-Conneen. “WAMU is a trusted and valuable source of news for Washington, reaching a highly engaged and influential audience. We are proud to be a sponsor as we celebrate our 125th anniversary.”

February’s message on WAMU sounds like this:

Support for WAMU comes from its members and from the American Society of Landscape Architects, celebrating 125 years designing parks, roads, and even football stadiums. Landscape architects help America work, play, and thrive.

ASLA will add additional messages to the airwaves as spring begins to dawn across the region and people’s thoughts turn to the outdoors.
