Designing Urban Nature into Children’s Play and Learning Places - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

This session is $40.00 for ASLA Members
Thursday, June 4th, 1:00-2:00 PM  Eastern Time (US & Canada)

Publication of the U.S. National Guidelines, Nature Play and Learning Places: Creating and Managing Places Where Children Engage with Nature (2014), provides a tool for landscape architects to join forces with community activists to advocate, promote, and execute play and learning places, where children can authentically engage with nature. The growing number of examples on the ground range from inexpensive, open access areas in municipal parks to protected spaces in nature centers and other nonformal education institutions. Upfront unit area costs vary greatly as do approaches to activity programming, management, and day-to-day maintenance. New approaches to risk management are evolving. Successful implementation is supported by locally grown policy combined with community participation in development.



  • Become conversant with the intent and contents of the U.S. National Guidelines, Nature Play and Learning Places.
  • Become aware of research supporting the benefits of human engagement with nature in terms of both individual and cultural development.
  • Appreciate the range of potential nature play and learning design interventions in urban contexts.
  • Understand the principles and methods of a behavioral approach to design of intergenerational, outdoor settings.

All sorts of information is available on the LARE - some good, some bad. How can exam candidates sort through the fact and fiction and develop a realistic approach to the LARE? This session will dispel the myths related to the LARE and the test-taking experience. The webinar will also include the latest CLARB data on passing rates, candidate trends, and determinants of success tools. 



  • Distinguish between myths and truths related to the LARE, and how first-time examinees can develop realistic strategies to approach the pre-exam process.
  • Gain insight on key data outcomes connected to the LARE, and how such information can be used to set clear expectations for the test-taking experience.
