ASLA/ACE Mentor Program Legacy Project
In 2008, ASLA introduced the Legacy Project as a gift to the host city of the annual meeting and EXPO. The host chapter teams up with the local affiliate of the ACE Mentor Program to design a project to be installed after the meeting. Many EXPO exhibitors donate products and plants each year for the project, allowing ASLA to give back to the city that hosts the meeting. Click below to learn more and donate! To learn more during the meeting, stop by the Louisiana Host-Chapter Booth in the registration area.
