What Are You Doing for Landscape Architecture Month? (And for Olmsted’s Birthday (April 26))?
The month of April is National Landscape Architecture Month (NLAM). This year’s focus for NLAM is Public Health & Active Living. During April, landscape architects across the country will educate the public about how the profession is well-poised to address these issues.
