Join Friends of the Domes at Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory in Milwaukee on Thursday, June 16th for a series of presentations on public space and the Milwaukee County Parks. 

"Keeping the "public" in our public spaces is critical to the sustainability of all of our community-owned treasures, including the Milwaukee County Parks. This engaging educational forum and luncheon will examine the Parks, looking at both their history and future from a sustainability and equity lens. Join a stellar lineup of thought leaders as we dig into this timely topic."

Stay tuned for upcoming events. Plans include a member social happy hour, 2022 Field Session, and continued Third Thursday events.

It was great to come together for the awards ceremony to celebrate the achievements of students and professionals in Wisconsin. The event was full of mingling and awards presentations along with dinner and drinks at Memorial Union. 

2022 WI ASLA Spring Conference 

Thank you to all who attended our 2022 WI ASLA Spring Conference at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. It was great to re(connect) in person with colleagues and sponsors to celebrate the future of landscape architecture in our communities and state. We had many wonderful presenters who showcased their project examples, design processes, and other historical knowledge of the profession. 

We look forward to seeing everyone next year when the conference heads back to the City of Madison.
