SvR is pleased to announce that Peg Staeheli, ASLA, PLA will be joining the board of the Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF), a Washington, DC based non-profit whose mission is to support the preservation, improvement and enhancement of the environment. Peg’s appointment continues SvR’s involvement with LAF, where Nate Cormier had served for the previous four years.
Peg’s leadership in site design, green stormwater infrastructure and quality community spaces as well as her passionate advocacy for well-maintained urban forests aligns well with the Foundation’s investments in research and scholarship to increase our collective capacity to achieve sustainability. “What LAF does so powerfully,” Staeheli notes, “is tell the profound story of landscape complexity in a way that is easily digestible and relatable to our everyday experience of the urban environment.”
SvR has previously worked with the Foundation to share the story of the Thornton Creek Water Quality Channel through the Landscape Performance Series.
