ASLA Colorado Public Welfare Research Study
Advocacy Through Research: Evaluating and Communicating the Public Welfare Benefits of Landscape Architecture Projects
This 2015 report describes a way to collect and communicate information about the public health, safety and welfare benefits of landscape architecture projects to build understanding of the value of projects, the profession, and the need for licensure of landscape architects. Jointly funded by ASLA Colorado and ASLA National, the research builds upon a 2010 study done by The Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB) that defined public welfare in the context of landscape architecture and identified seven impact areas where landscape architecture benefits the public welfare. Key elements of the ASLA Colorado report are a case study evaluation tool to gather the public welfare benefit story of a project, and a template for presenting that information in an easy-to-understand format.
Opportunities to Serve: Landscape Architecture Accreditation Board 9-14-2015
The LAAB develops and communicates the accreditation standards, rules and procedures for conducting the accreditation process. The LAAB is the official accrediting body for first professional programs in landscape architecture, for both undergraduate and graduate programs. The accreditation process is a non-governmental, voluntary system of self-regulation: its core is the concept of self-evaluation of each program and evaluates each program on the basis of its stated objectives and compliance to externally mandated minimum standards. Here is a List of programs accredited by LAAB. More Information (pdf)
World Landscape Architecture Program 2015
Along with ASLA chapters across the country, we are continuing the "World Landscape Architecture Month" campaign to extend for the remainder of 2015. It continues to be a successful outreach to both domestic and international landscape architects. As April has come and gone, we have revised the hashtag to post your "Designed By a Landscape Architect" photos to #ThisIsLandArch. For those that would like to post something by other means, simply email your photo to [email protected] and we will do the rest. This is a fantastic way to showcase your work!
2016 HALS Challenge: Documenting National Register Listed Landscapes
The Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS) was created in 2000 to document our country's dynamic landscapes. Much progress has been made in identifying cultural landscapes but more is needed to document these designed and vernacular places.
For the 7th annual HALS Challenge, The National Park Service invites you to document National Register listed landscapes from your region of the country. Authorized by the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, the National Register of Historic Places is the official list of the nation's historic places worthy of preservation. Currently there are 90,540 total with 1,752,995 contributing resources. Many of these listings represent or include landscapes. Submission deadline is July 31.
