Welcome to the Pennsylvania-Delaware Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects website! The PA-DE ASLA Chapter was founded in 1959 to advocate for and serve members studying and practicing landscape architecture in Pennsylvania and Delaware. The Chapter is comprised of over 581 members with 189 student members from four geographic Sections: Eastern PA, Central PA, Western PA and Delaware, and student members from six colleges. This diverse group of members engages in public, private and academic practices that participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning and artful design of our cultural and natural environments.
The Chapter’s Purpose
The purpose of the Chapter shall be the advancement of knowledge, education, and skill in the art and science of landscape architecture as an instrument of service in the public welfare. To this end, the Chapter shall promote the profession of landscape architecture and advance the practice through advocacy, education, communication, and fellowship.
Advocacy and Member Services
The Chapter advances the profession by conducting a wide range of professional education programs, public outreach events, tours of public landscapes, and networking opportunities. Members promote the public’s awareness of the profession through local media and presentations in middle and high schools. We advocate at the government level on issues affecting licensure and professional practice. Members are informed about events and important issues through this website and regular e-mail announcements. The Chapter’s annual meeting is hosted each April at a location that rotates through the four Sections. The two-day conference provides a great educational and networking venue, along with a premier exhibitor hall showcasing the latest products and technology.
Our Chapter’s success depends on its members. If you have an idea for an educational topic, wish to host an event, or want to be better connected with other landscape architects, please contact us. Not a member yet? Join here.
