This April is World Landscape Architecture Month, a global celebration of landscape architecture. The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) wants you to join the celebration by sharing your favorite outdoor designed space from around the world on social media with #WLAM2016.

"World Landscape Architecture Month is an excellent opportunity to see the beautiful, innovative and sustainable work of landscape architects from around the globe," said Nancy Somerville, Hon. ASLA, executive vice president and CEO of ASLA. "It's also a lot of fun."

The work of landscape architects will be on display on Tuesday, April 12, when WTTW's "10 Parks That Changed America" debuts on PBS. "10 Parks That Changed America" will follow the evolution of parks and public spaces from across the country. From the squares of Savannah, Georgia to the High Line in New York City, this series illustrates how landscape architecture shapes how we interact with our environment.

  • Download a "This Is Landscape Architecture" card here (also in Spanish).
  • Take a photo of the card at your favorite park, plaza or landscape architect-designed space.
  • Upload the photo to Instagram, Twitter and other social media platforms with #WLAM2016.
  • See how others are celebrating at asla.org/wlam.
