Our Programs

LAF invests in research, scholarships, and leadership initiatives to increase the capacity of the landscape architecture discipline by:

- Providing support for students to diversify the pool of talent and increase academic opportunity

- Investing in research to expand our knowledge and help designers and advocates make the case for more sustainable policies and landscape solutions

- Championing emerging issues and new modes of practice

- Communicating the value of landscape architecture and exemplary design

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.
