The Annual Benefit was a joyous affair where leaders in landscape mingled with emerging professionals, and attendees caught up with friends old and new.

The evening capped off events celebrating the first 10 years of LAF’s landmark Olmsted Scholars Program and showcased the recipients of the $25,000 LAF Fellowship for Innovation and Leadership and their transformative projects. LAF also announced 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.

The event was captured in photographs,  memories, and connections made.
