This special initiative of ASLA Career Discovery and Diversity promotes literacy education among elementary school girls with a fun introduction to landscape architecture using children’s books published by ASLA members and design charrettes.

ASLA encourages all 49 chapters to partner with their local elementary school and host an event during World Landscape Architecture Month. The first ten chapters to sign up will be surprised by a box of giveaways from ASLA.

Learn more about STEM Literacy by Design and resources for middle and high school students on the Introduce a Girl to Landscape Architecture web page.

For Women’s History Month 2024 and beyond, the Women in Landscape Architecture Professional Practice Network (PPN) is launching a call for submissions from women in the profession (self-nominations and nominations welcome!).

Profiles will be shared on social media and on The Field blog to celebrate #womeninlandscapearchitecture who are shaping our environment. All are welcome to share this call—the goal is to highlight diverse voices of landscape architects, including those who are active in their chapters or in their local communities, with perspectives from all career path stages, wherever that path may be taking you.
