Welcome to World Landscape Architecture Month everyone! Every year, ASLA and the local Chapters take the month of April to celebrate our profession and use this month to promote landscape architecture. All month long, please checkout our social media accounts, as well as National’s, for awesome and unique projects as well as exciting events that are taking place. I always enjoy seeing all the new and exciting projects. Learning about innovative designs is what helps shape and grow the work I do. If there was ever a time to stumble upon something new, this would be the month to do it.
Additionally, April 26th is the 200th birthday of Frederick Law Olmsted. Being the father of landscape architecture, we at WI ASLA will be promoting his legacy throughout the month. Please visit www.olmsted200.org for more information regarding the 200th birthday celebration, as well as maps of Olmsted works, and articles highlighting some of his projects from around the country.
Lastly, WI ASLA has put out a call for members to join the board! If you have ever thought to yourself that the Spring Conference, Field Sessions, or just making friends sounds fun, then this is the board for you! We are always looking for new members to join our committees and to help with many of the events we all love to participate in. This year we have five possible positions. Please review the position descriptions if you are interested, and if there are any questions, please reach out to myself or email@example.com.
Until next time,
Alexander Thill, ASLA
Wisconsin Chapter President

For #WLAM2022, we explore: What is landscape architecture? What does landscape architecture mean to you? ASLA invites you to post your answers on your social media channels throughout the month of April. And since this year, on April 26th, we’ll celebrate Frederick Law Olmsted’s 200th birthday feel free to incorporate his legacy into your answer. By the end of April, ASLA National will identify the top five posts based on the number of Likes and Comments, but make sure you tag your post with the hashtag #WLAM2022 so it can be tracked.
