Landscape Architects

Third graders who take part in Good Neighbors develop an appetite for learning more about today's landscape architects. Working with the Boston Society of Landscape Architects, we have developed an Adopt-a-Classroom program that engages landscape architecture firms in hosting class visits. If you are interested in hosting a class visit or learning more about how your firm can participate in the Adopt-a-Classroom program, contact the park Education Specialist at 617.566.1689 ext 238 or by email.

Together, we can provide urban youth with real-world opportunities to learn how the profession of landscape architecture contributes to community life and health.

BSLA funding through the ASLA Chapter Initiatives Program supports a component of Good Neighbors in which students are introduced to the tools used in the early 20th design process.
