#WLAM2021: Celebrating Canadian #LandArch Publications
This year's spotlight for WLAM focuses on publications written by and for Canadian landscape architects that have shaped and continue to guide the profession. From renowned authors in the field, to integral publications such as the Canadian Landscape Charter, we will be taking this time to highlight a few of our favourite pieces by Canadian landscape architects. We encourage you to join us by posting your favourite publications, your photos of Canadian landscapes, or some of our colouring pages on social media and tag us. To find more ways that you can celebrate WLAM with us, see below. Happy World Landscape Architecture Month!

ASLA Designs Online Learning Fun at Home
From hosting story time with young readers, to designing or building activities, ASLA has the resources to keep kids busy. For high school students, we have a number of online resources that will spark their curiosity about career options.
Every April Canadian landscape architects join their colleagues around the world to celebrate our profession. April is the perfect month to share our profession and reach out to our communities, notable for Earth Day (April 22nd) and the birthday of Frederick Law Olmsted (April 27th), founder of the landscape architecture profession in North America.
The Purpose of the CSLA WLAM program is to provide resources to:
- bring local and national recognition and awareness to the profession, Landscape Architects, and works of landscape architecture in Canada;
- encourage public participation and interest in events and activities related to landscape architecture; and,
- encourage people (particularly young people) to consider a career in landscape architecture.
