L-R: Amanda Clerkin, David Jordan, and Randy Wright speak with Rep. Carolyn Comitta (156th District/Chester County) about Nature’s Sanctuary at West Laurel Hill Cemetery near her district.
On behalf of our 600+ landscape architect and student members, representatives of the PA-DE ASLA Executive Committee traveled to Harrisburg on September 23 to meet with Pennsylvania legislators and members of the public to raise awareness about the profession and the organization.
The group positioned PA-DE ASLA as an expert resource on such topics as the impact of Landscape Architecture on public health, safety, and welfare, the importance of partnering with Landscape Architects for municipal planning, community revitalization, conservation, stormwater management, green infrastructure design and implementation, and more. Additionally, the twelve 2019 PA-DE ASLA “People’s Choice Award” submission posters were displayed as examples of exemplary landscape architecture across Pennsylvania, Delaware, and the country.
It is important that our state legislators know about our organization, their landscape architect constituents, and how we (and you) can be of help and service in considering, drafting, and implementing any policy that affects the profession, the environment, and the citizens of Pennsylvania and Delaware.
