March 8th – SO Regionals in Tucson!

It was a great day yesterday at SO Regionals in Tucson! 7 MLA students volunteered to help the kids in several events including Invasive Species, Road Scholar, Gliders and Disease Detectives. This is an important part of AzASLA’s “Career Discovery” activities. The middles schoolers who participated in Science Olympiad come from all over the state and are the best and the brightest of their schools. It’s only a few years before they will be making decisions on their college majors and we hope to plant the seed in their minds to consider landscape architecture!
Thanks to Daniel, Gabriel, Katie, Jon, Elliot, Matthew, and Britain for your time and enthusiasm yesterday!

September 18th – ASLA is going to be making a big push for PARK(ing) Day (9/18). To encourage participation, ASLA is holding a social media contest. It’s pretty simple: ASLA is asking people to share pictures of their PARK(ing) Day parklets on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, [insert social media platform that uses hashtags here], etc. with the hashtag #ASLAPD. In addition to sharing these pictures, we’re going to choose one professional and one student parklet we see on social media with the hashtag and put them in the (probably based on the October deadline) November issue of Landscape Architecture Magazine. Below you’ll find the basic rules of the contest/how to participate. You can also find the information (on Parking Day, including ASLA insurance) on the…PARK(ing) Day Web Page: http://asla.org/contentdetail.aspx?id=46872

September 8th – On September 8th the TCC Historic District (the Eckbo landscape) was listed in the National Register of Historic Places. It met the criterion of ‘exceptional significance’, which means that it was determined eligible despite the fact that it is not yet fifty years old. In addition it was listed at the National Level of Significance, which confirms its important position in the history of American landscape architecture. There are perhaps only a half dozen properties in the US that hold this degree of distinction.

June 11th – Pamela Graf, a local Landscape Architect, passed away on Thursday, June 4th at the age of 61. During her professional career in Scottsdale, Pam “left her footprints,” figuratively and literally, on many projects such as: Gainey Ranch, Desert Highlands, Desert Mountain, Lost Canyon, DC Ranch and on numerous residences throughout the Valley and in other states. She will be missed, however, she will be remembered and appreciated by residents of these communities who, every day, are the beneficiaries of her talent and legacy.

ASLA's Mission is to lead, to educate, and to participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environments.
