                       www.apala.net — The Atlantic Provinces Association of Landscape Architects site
                           is a bit slow to load (be patient). This site includes a useful explanation of services
                                  that LA’s can provide, as well as links, news, members and education.

              www.asla.org — The American Society of Landscape Architects site offers a free screensaver, in
                   addition to a bookstore, buyer’s guide, events, jobs and information on continuing education.

                                   Watch this space for the launch of our very own BCSLA Web site!

                   If you have something to share with our membership, such as:

          A great book, an excellent lecture, a new plant, a new baby, a job opportunity,
        an issue that makes you hot under the collar, a place that refreshes and delights you,
           new knowledge or a way to save the world (like a chicken in every backyard)!
                                Coming soon in our February issue.

              Write it, shoot it (with a camera), draw it, express it, and send it to us,
        and we’ll discover the wealth of individuals and their ideas that make up the BCSLA!
