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 here to learn more!
