Kentucky chapter members of ASLA shared their stories of how they became landscape architects with design-oriented high school students as a part of our outreach during landscape architecture month. University of Kentucky LA students also shared their stories of college life and how the LA program in the state works. 100 copies of Landscape Architecture Magazine were passed out. About 150-200 students were very engaged and interested in hearing more. The chapter hopes to have more events like this through the year.
