2024 Jensen-Longenecker and WI ASLA Awards Reception

Thank you to all applicants that submitted entries for the 2024 Professional Awards. Award winners were announced at the Jensen-Longenecker and WI ASLA Awards Banquet at the University of Wisconsin-Madison on April 19, 2024. It was great to come together for this awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of students and professionals in Wisconsin. Thanks to the UW-Madison Department of Planning and Landscape Architecture (DPLA) for their partnership in this event.

Spring Conference

We had a great conference in Milwaukee! There was so much to learn from a fantastic lineup of speakers covering topics from the perceptions of our profession to community engagement and local project examples. Plus, the informative vendor expo, lively social at the Third Street Market Hall and the construction tour on the UW-Milwaukee campus all added to the experience. Thank you to all the speakers, sponsors, and volunteers that make this event such a success every year! 

Terrace Town

Terrace Town is an amazing program organized by the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center. Over the course of a few months, planning and design professionals visit elementary schools across Dane County to teach students about cities and how to participate in their community. WI ASLA had an opportunity to participate in the Open House event. Throughout the day, we encouraged kids to think like a landscape architect as they imagined their park design in the form of a collage. After seeing the thoughtful selection of images and creative solutions to the activity, there were some potential future landscape architects in attendance!

Annual Meeting & Mentorship Kickoff Event

Conversation filled the room as we kicked off the new Mentorship Program with UW-Madison students at our Annual Meeting. The Event was held at the Edgewater Hotel in Madison. We came together with membership for a nice dinner to share our Chapter success from the past year and look forward to what is to come in 2024! We also took this time to honor our Recognition Award recipients for this year.

ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture

Our Chapter has an impressive turnout at the National Conference on Landscape Architecture in Minneapolis this year. The LABash Block Party provided an opportunity for our members to connect with University of Wisconsin-Madison students and alumni. 

Milwaukee Fall Field Session

Thanks to everyone who attended our 2023 Fall Field Session in Milwaukee. We had the opportunity to tour Wagner in the morning, followed by stops at Green Bay Playfield, Lakeshore State Park, the Discovery World E-Cacia Tree, and Northwestern Mutual Community Park Playground. Despite a little rain, we learned a lot about local projects in Milwaukee!

2023 Park(ing) Day at UW-Madison Campus

Park(ing) Day was a blast! The WI ASLA Emerging Professionals hosted the event on the UW-Madison campus near Memorial Union. This years theme was "Pollinator Places" so the group spent the day educating the public about pollinator communities, their habitats and how to assist in creating thriving ecosystems for them through landscape architecture and our everyday lives. Thank you to all our sponsors for supporting this effort by providing materials and financial assistance to make the event a success!

Green Bay Field Session and Annual Dinner

Thanks to all who joined WI ASLA in Green Bay for our fall Field Session, Annual Meeting, and Recognition Awards celebration. The day started out at Neenah Foundry where we learned about the manufacturing process and toured part of their facility. From there, the group made their way up to Green Bay for tours of Bay Beach and the Broadway District. Bay Beach is a city owned amusement park with a rich history and unique plans for beach restoration in the bay. In the Broadway District, we heard about plans for revitalization and strategies for redevelopment. We also discussed the Shipyard Redevelopment Project that is currently under construction in the area. The field session tour ended with a walk through the Titletown District. It was great to learn about the design and programming decisions that were made for this year round destination right outside Lambeau Field. The evening concluded with the WI ASLA Annual Meeting where we discussed Chapter business and accomplishments. We also took this opportunity to present recognition awards to members with exemplary achievements and service to the profession.
