Celebrating a Decade of Community Assistance Partnerships, highlighting the NPS-ASLA partnership (2010)
This brochure highlights the great collaborations of the past two years between the Rivers & Trails program of the National Park Service (NPS) and the American Society of Landscape Architects. One of the highlights focuses on the collaboration with our own Chisholm Trails project; a huge success! The community is very grateful for the ideas and drawings that Maine Chapter members Dan Morabito, Chris Di Matteo, and Wright Pierce (Jennifer Claster and Travis Pryor) so generously donated.
