ASLA Advocacy Day 2019

ASLA ADVOCACY DAY 2019
 
Landscape Architects and the Art of Infrastructure

The 116th Congress appears ready to address our nation’s failing infrastructure. Landscape architects have the education, training, and skills to design more functional multimodal transportation corridors, water management systems, and parks and recreational spaces. Landscape architects have mastered the art of infrastructure, and now is the time for the profession to educate policy makers and lead the country in creating more functional, resilient, and equally accessible systems.
