Upcoming Webinar to Highlight Landscape Architecture Careers in the Federal Government


Have you ever considered a career in the federal government? Agencies like the U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, National Park Service, and General Services Administration influence what happens on millions of acres of land. From designing national parks and government facilities to shaping national policy, these agencies benefit from the unique perspective and expertise of landscape architects.

On Sept 15, the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) are hosting a free webinar highlighting the exciting opportunities for landscape architects to work in the federal government.
