Posted on Monday, May 15th, 2017

A group of landscape architecture students recently took a trip down to the University of Maryland from March 23rd - 25th for the 47th annual LABash conference. LABash (originally founded in 1970 at the University of Guelph) is an annual student-planned conference for landscape architecture students and professionals in North America. This year, the University of Guelph had the second highest representation at the conference with a total of 16 students attending.

The trip was partially funded by an OAC Experiential Learning Grant. The Grant gave the students the opportunity to celebrate landscape architecture, learn new skills, network with other students and prospective employers, and gain inspiration for their work and future careers. The students continue to express their gratitude and excitement regarding the event and have been speaking very highly about the educational and professional opportunities the conference has led to.

While in the area, the group took in some sites in DC spending time at the National Mall, United States Botanic Garden, and the American Society of Landscape Architects building, further adding to the experience.
