Landscape Architects in the Federal Service
Thursday, September 15th, 2:00-3:15 PM  Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Landscape architects serving in the federal government possess a range of unique professional opportunities, from designing sites for government buildings, national parks and forests, to collaborating with interdisciplinary teams and shaping national policy. Come learn more about the benefits of working in the federal government from representatives of two major federal agencies: U.S. Forest Service, U.S. General Service Administration, and the Smithsonian Institution. A segment of the presentation will be dedicated to the various pathways to entering federal service.



  • Understand how landscape architects make a difference in protecting, preserving, and enhancing public lands.
  • Gain familiarity with the range of project types, national policies, and initiatives undertaken by federal agency landscape architects.
  • Explore the variety of leadership roles within landscape architecture across federal agencies.
  • Identify pathways to a career as a landscape architect in the federal government.
Bringing Bioswales to Life - 1.5 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

This session is $50.00 for ASLA Members
Tuesday, September 27th, 12:00-1:30 PM  Eastern Time (US & Canada)

The use of bioswales to treat stormwater runoff by reducing Total Suspended Solids (TSS), Total Phosphorus (TP), and Total Nitrogen (TN) loads is an increasingly common Best Management Practice (BMP) throughout state and local jurisdictions. However, the successful design, construction, and maintenance of bioswales is proving to be difficult, as evidenced by poor vegetation establishment and unanticipated short- and long-term maintenance requirements of desired plantings. Plants are a vital component of bioswales for a variety of reasons, so when a bioswale does not have healthy, vigorous vegetative cover, we know the entire BMP is not functioning to its greatest potential. This webinar will present insight into how bioswales work, why creating fully functioning bioswales is challenging, and key factors in successful design and implementation, so that the fully integrated ecosystem of bioswales can be brought to life.



  • Understand how bioswales function and why we use them.
  • Identify challenges to successful implementation of bioswales.
  • Recognize key components of good design, construction, and maintenance practices that affect the success of vegetation establishment in bioswales.
