Founded in 1899, the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), a 501(c)(6) organization, is the national professional association for landscape architects, representing more than 15,000 members in 49 professional chapters and 72 student chapters. Members of the Society use the “ASLA” suffix after their names to denote membership and their commitment to the highest ethical standards of the profession.
Our Vision: Leading the design and stewardship of land and communities.
Our Mission: Landscape architects lead the stewardship, planning, and design of our built and natural environments. The Society's mission is to advance landscape architecture through advocacy, communication, education, and fellowship.
The Minnesota Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA-MN) was incorporated in 1976 and is comprised of nearly 300 members with a reach that extends far beyond our membership via initiatives such as _SCAPE, social media, electronic newsletters, and relationships with allied professions.
