|ASLA-MN 2012 Making Waves | Changing Course|
Dear ASLA-MN Members and Allied Professionals,
Please take a moment to link to the following YouTube video from ASLA Minnesota that was presented at the Chapter Presidents Council meeting at the 2011 ASLA national conference in San Diego. ASLA Minnesota is a national leader in the Society's public relations campaign, learn why by linking to:
In 2012, the American Society of Landscape Architects-Minnesota Chapter will focus on protecting, enhancing, and celebrating our regional waters. Our theme is Making waves. Changing course. How landscape architecture is changing the way we understand water.
Changes in climate and increased human pressures are difficult to predict. What is certain is that our complex connection with water will continue as will our constant effort to understand and improve that relationship. The waterways we take for granted here in the Midwest create environmental, social and economic ripples that can be felt across the country and around the world. Similarly, 21st century solutions and innovations have the power to alter the course of industries, fields of research, and the way we live.
Water is one of the most powerful and important elements of our landscape. ASLA-MN looks forward to showcasing the work it inspires and the legacy landscape architects will leave.
