The Governors of Idaho and Montana have proclaimed April as Landscape Architecture Month. This month, people are encouraged to plant and care for trees and to acknowledge the quality of life that trees and green spaces contribute to our lives.
April is World Landscape Architecture Month (WLAM) 2017, an international celebration of landscape architecture. WLAM introduces the profession to the public by showcasing landscape architect designed spaces around the world.
Working with landscape architects, communities can promote health and well-being by encouraging the development of environments that offer rich social, economic, and environmental benefits. Healthy, livable communities improve the welfare and well-being of people by expanding the range of affordable transportation, employment, and housing choices; incorporating physical activity into components of daily life; preserving and enhancing valuable natural resources; providing access to affordable, nutritious, and locally produced foods distributed for less cost; and creating a unique sense of community and place.
