ASLA/ACE Mentor Legacy Project

In 2008, ASLA introduced the Legacy Project as a gift to the host city of the annual conference. The host chapter teams up with the local affiliate of the ACE Mentor Program to design a project to be installed after the meeting. Many EXPO exhibitors donate products and plants each year for the project, allowing ASLA to give back to the city that hosts the meeting.

2020 ASLA/ACE Mentor Legacy Project Liberty Elementary School Yard Re-Design

SIGN UP to Donate Items Now

This year the ASLA Florida Chapter moved forward with the re-development of Liberty City Elementary School Yard as the site for the Legacy Project. ASLA’s support of this hands-on STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, math) educational project is under the leadership of Prof. Ebru Ozer,  member of the ASLA Florida Chapter,  providing guidance to the eleven-student Miami Coral Park Senior High ACE Legacy Team.

Prof. Ozer graciously put together progress reports for further information.

ASLA EXPO exhibitors generously donate products and plants each year for the project, allowing ASLA to give back to the city that hosts the meeting. For information on how to assist with or donate to this project, visit or stop by the Florida Chapter Booth in the registration area during the conference. Below is a wish list of desired items.

ASLA EXPO Exhibitors

This is an all-volunteer led project and, as in year’s past, support is needed from ASLA EXPO exhibitors. Exhibitors can pledge donations either before or during the 2020 ASLA Conference on Landscape Architecture. Whether you sign-up in advance or onsite, you will be required to pick-up labels from the exhibitors lounge and label donation items in your booth.

Following the show’s closing, Freeman will collect all labeled items for donations. Details will be available in a confirmation email that you will receive once you complete the online donation form.

Unfortunately we cannot accept live plants. Please check with your tax advisor for tax deduction eligibility and opportunities.
