LAF Says Thanks!

LAF, the association, which supports the preservation, improvement and enhancement of the environment, says thank you for a great year!

The Landscape Architecture Foundation says thank you to friends, donors, and partners for support throughout the 2013 year. LAF also shared their accomplishments:

o Awarded over $125,000 to students
o Recognized 67 new Olmsted Scholars, including the first undergraduate national winner
o Published the 75th Landscape Performance Series (LPS) case study, documenting the environmental, economic, and social benefits of exemplary landscape projects
o Awarded $22,500 to researchers to analyze the LPS and develop a guidebook on metrics and methods to evaluate landscape performance
o Met with over 1,400 professionals through office visits, webinars, and conference presentations to increase awareness about landscape performance

In 2014, LAF will increase its impact with more scholarship awards, a new guidebook on evaluating landscape performance, a new webinar series, a new clearinghouse of teaching tools for landscape architecture faculty, and even more resources to help you design better and make the case for sustainable landscape solutions.
