Feb 19, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Feb 19, 2019 1:00pm

Credits: None available.

This webinar will give an overview of how to use the recently published ASLA Landscape Architecture Technical Information Series (LATIS) report, A Landscape Performance and Metrics Primer for Landscape Architects, in order to conduct a landscape performance assessment of a site. Attendees will be introduced to landscape performance research strategies and specific methods and case studies for assessing environmental, socio-cultural, and economic performance, including those relevant to SITES v2 credits for performance monitoring.

The GBCI course ID for this course is 0920018593, providing SITES-specific CE hours required to maintain SITES AP credentials. Participants will need to pass the exam at the end of the presentation in order to receive a certificate of completion. Participants will need to self-report CE hours through their credentials account on usgbc.org.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify strategies and standardized methods for data collection for use in quantifying and improving landscape performance benefits for environmental, socio-cultural, and economic performance. 
  • Learn a variety of methods to assess the effectiveness of conservation and/or restoration activities in order to achieve SITES v2 C4.7: Conserve and restore native plant communities. 
  • Identify methods for determining the overall health of a soil during the site assessment, construction, and post-occupancy phases of a project, and how these methods can be applied to achieve SITES v2 Construction P7.3: Restore soils disturbed by construction AND Construction C7.4: Restore soils disturbed by previous development. 
  • Explore quantitative and qualitative methods for designing and assessing a site for its ability to support social performance criteria, supporting physical activity of users, in order to achieve SITES v2 C6.5: Support physical activity.

An Instrumental Guide to Blending Music & Community - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Jan 30, 2019 12:00pm ‐ Jan 30, 2019 1:00pm

Credits: None available.

Music parks benefit every member of the community, but few communities have a music program available and affordable to everyone. A permanent installation of instruments changes that. A simplified system allows anyone to play, regardless of training or ability, and instruments can be designed for individual and ensemble play. Music transcends age, gender, ethnicity and mobility, and is a gathering force that builds better communities and helps make people kinder.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the many benefits of music on individuals, families, and communities.
  • Plan, design, and maintain a successful music park for maximum years of use.
  • Create the desired space utilization for a destination within a park.

The Play Environment: A New Paradigm for Play Areas – 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Dec 11, 2018 1:00pm ‐ Dec 11, 2018 2:00pm

Credits: None available.

Play environments fulfill a vital role in the physical, social, and cognitive development of their users. These spaces allow kids and adults to engage all their senses to find calm and work together to assess and overcome challenges.

There are two important design trends that have helped amplify the reach and benefits of public play spaces over the past several years - inclusivity and nature play. We now see more parks and playgrounds that celebrate inclusive design. Rather than programming for specific separate user “restrictions,” play environments offer a range of accessibility and challenges that promotes side-by-side play. Integrating natural spaces allows a greater freedom of expression, imagination, creativity, and exploration.

These play environments blur the boundaries that separate people of differing abilities, ages, and interests. Creating inviting play environments that appeal to the largest possible number of people is a way to bring greater social vitality to any community.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understanding: Participants will learn how play environments differ from traditional design in a way that addresses the needs of a diverse population.
  • Evidence-Based: Participants will learn how studies in physical therapy, occupational therapy, and biophilic response affect the design of play environments.
  • Incorporation: Participants will learn how to incorporate strategies in their own projects to create a holistic play environment that benefits a large population of users.
  • Amplification: Participants will learn how strategies for creating play environments can be applied to schools, healthcare facilities, corporate, and residential landscapes.

A Guide to Economic Analyses of Parks for Landscape Architects - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Dec 5, 2018 1:00pm ‐ Dec 5, 2018 2:00pm

Credits: None available.

This presentation will begin with an overview of seven categories of economic benefits generated by city park systems and how to measure those benefits. The benefit categories include enhanced property value, recreational use, health of area residents, tourism, stormwater infiltration, air pollution removal, and economic development. The Trust for Public Land will present results from cities where they have previously worked and sources of publicly available data you can use.

We know the benefits of investment in parks, open space, and open space networks are both qualitative (felt) and quantitative (observed), yet park champions often need to provide estimates of a return on investment, measured in benefit or value creation. “Value creation,” which is not universally defined, can be project-specific, and an over-emphasis on economics often leaves equity behind. HR&A will discuss examples of building narratives of “public benefits” including both qualitative and quantitative benefits to tell the whole story within the economic and political context so that we can identify and mobilize supporters, build public-private partnerships, and unlock sources of funding.

Given the many stakeholders affected by parks, managing parks, and funding parks, credible impact studies on parks are a very useful tool for planning and in stakeholder management. Conducting multifaceted studies on large parks requires a multidisciplinary approach that goes well beyond quantifying economics. The Balboa Park Conservancy partnered with San Diego State University to look at the many impacts the park has on the economy, the environment and on social issues such as health and youth. The study has served as an objective platform for many dialogues with a diverse group of stakeholders including politicians, the public, and the 85 organizations operating in the park.

Hosted by the ASLA Parks & Recreation Professional Practice Network

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the types of economic benefits that can result from parks.
  • Understand what economic information is publicly available and how to use this information to make an argument in favor of investments in parks.
  • Articulate the benefits and challenges of working with a university on this type of work.
  • Understand how a multidisciplinary approach offers a more powerful impact study.
  • Create a stakeholder management strategy that engages a diverse group in ways that are meaningful to them.

Learning from Three Decades of Practicing Ecological Restoration in the Upper Midwest (U.S.) - 1.0 PDH (LA CES/HSW)

Nov 19, 2018 12:00pm ‐ Nov 19, 2018 1:00pm

Credits: None available.

Restoring degraded landscapes often brings both surprises and disappointments.  While some changes become apparent after the first year or two of interventions, working on restorations for a decade or more provides valuable lessons and insights for the practice of ecological restoration.  The leaders of this webinar have had the opportunity to work on long-term restorations in a city’s natural areas program and a university botanical gardens and arboretum and will share lessons they have learned over 20-30 years of practice.  Topics will cover the detective work in learning a site’s history and potential for restoration, developing restoration targets and realistic expectations, creating the mechanisms for carrying out a restoration, and committing to the long-term needs of a restoration project.  Emphasis will be on terrestrial ecosystems of the upper Midwest—namely prairies, oak openings, and woodlands.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify background information needed about a site and its history (especially related to plants, soils, and hydrology) before beginning planning a restoration
  • Understand criteria for setting restoration targets and planning a restoration process
  • Understand the need for evaluation and the commitment needed for restoration success
