With current trends of economic growth and development on the rise, the role of Landscape Architects to guide planning and design decisions with our natural resources in mind is more vital than ever. The theme, "Protecting the Natural World", will explore such topics as the preservation of natural lands, protecting our waterways, support of public programs and facilities, grant and funding alternatives in a time of budget cuts, and the value of landscape and habitat in urban areas.
