April is National Landscape Architecture Month

Updated Feb 19, 2013

To recognize National Landscape Architecture Month in April, many landscape architects will host activities to celebrate the profession and explain how their work contributes to the public’s well-being. In keeping with this year’s theme, many events will demonstrate how green design can encourage healthy living.

Some of the events throughout National Landscape Architecture Month include:

  • Building a series of rain gardens for Joplin, Missouri, which is still recovering from a devastating tornado, by the Prairie Gateway chapter
  • Garden design workshops in three Alaskan cities
  • Three walking tours in San Diego County
  • A “sketch walk” at Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center in New York City
  • A program in the schools and a wetlands walk in Southern California
  • A self-guided walking tour of downtown Indianapolis’s significant landscapes, public parks, and urban design scheme
  • A program in Idaho working with students and the local high school environmental education program
  • Showing a documentary film, “Biophilic Design: The Architecture of Life,” in Boston that explores the need and importance of reconnecting people with nature
  • Community-based garden design In Utah, carried out by the Wasatch Community Gardens and the Utah Chapter of ASLA.
