As the University of Maryland Student Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects (SASLA), our mission is to lead, educate, and participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environments. We strive to create a sense of community within the landscape architecture department and provide professional and academic resources for students.
Park(ing) Day 2023--We converted two parking spaces into a parklet!What is LABash?
LABash is an annual student-run Landscape Architecture conference hosted annually since 1970. LABash2024 will take place at UC Davis from March 28th - March 30th, 2024. The three-day conference features lectures from professors and professionals, design workshops, charrettes, and ample networking opportunities. Specialized workshops allow students to expand upon their skill set and prepare them to enter the professional force. Additionally, the conference is a great opportunity for students to become involved in the landscape architecture community by meeting both students and professionals! Many students have maintained friendships and professional relationships with people they met at LABash. Click here to learn more.

Your donation can help change students’ lives and kickstart their careers! In the past, SASLA members have walked away from the conference with internship offers and countless networking contacts, but most importantly a renewed drive and spirit to succeed. Contributing to our project will help SASLA continue to fulfill our mission providing opportunities for self-development! Donations will go toward funding travel, lodging, and registration expenses for students who would like to attend.
