As part of this year’s ASLA Legacy Project in connection with the national ASLA Conference and Expo right here in San Francisco, our co-chairs are helping fold into our profession a number of high school and college students. The students will be working with mentors, volunteers and landscape architects over two Saturdays this July on developing designs for the Golden Gate Greenway project. The project will benefit residents of San Francisco’s Tenderloin in opening up the 100 block of Golden Gate Avenue to a more pedestrian-friendly use, and contribute to the much needed open recreational space in the neighborhood.
We would like to honor the students’ involvement, and instill in them that their time and design efforts are valuable. We also hope to boost their excitement about landscape architecture at the conference itself, making it possible for them to attend, find inspiration, and make connections. Can your firm offer a sponsorship to one or more students who will participate in the design charettes to cover the cost of the conference entry fee? $200 per ticket would help us get them there.
The student ticket sponsorship is a tax-deductible donation, and can be easily completed through the ASLA support fund or the ASLA donation page. In the orange Donation area, please indicate the amount you would like to contribute, and select “Legacy Project Student Volunteers” from the drop-down menu to direct your donation toward the student conference ticket/s.
Many thanks, and looking forward to seeing you at Moscone Center in early November!
