The benefit will cap off events celebrating the first 10 years of LAF’s landmark Olmsted Scholars Program and showcase the recipients of the $25,000 LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership and their transformative projects. We will also announce our Action Plan, tangible ways to get started in answering the bold call to action in the New Landscape Declaration with ideas from listening to over 6,000 landscape architects. 

All tickets include fine local food and an open bar. Proceeds support LAF research, scholarships, and leadership initiatives. This event is held in conjunction with the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) 2018 Annual Meeting and EXPO.

LAF is grateful to the many individuals and organizations that provide financial support towards fulfilling our mission to support the preservation, improvement, and enhancement of the environment.

Much of what LAF is able to accomplish would not be possible without the thought leadership and financial investment of our major supporters, including ASLA, which provides over $125,000 of in-kind support annually.
