Importance of Landscape Architecture at the Zoo

On September 15, ASLA and the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF) teamed up to host Landscape Architects as Federal Leaders, a live webinar exploring positions for landscape architects in the federal government and pathways to employment throughout the federal agencies. The webinar featured representatives from federal agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service and the Smithsonian Institution, who discussed federal leadership opportunities available to landscape architects, the range of project types, and national policies that impact landscape architects as well as the pathways to careers in federal service. The Smithsonian's National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute's own landscape architect, Jennifer Daniels, gave a presentation. Watch below; the presentation starts at the 24-minute mark.
