Landscape Architecture Alumni Association

The Landscape Architecture Alumni Association (LAAA) serves BLA and MLA graduates from the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development (SEDRD) at the University of Guelph.  The LAAA aims to support the school, connect with students and alumni and ultimately raise the profile of the landscape architecture profession.
