Annual Potomac Chapter ASLA Picnic

Bring your family and join your friends and colleagues for BBQ and fun.  Please BYOB and a side dish (with your serving utensil).  The Chapter will provide barbeque (pulled pork, chicken, cole slaw, and BBQ beans) and water.  The picnic takes place rain or shine.  Lawn games are welcome!

While Fort Hunt isn’t metro accessible, you can bike along the Parkway trail.  If you’d like to try to arrange a ride with someone, go on our Facebook page to try to connect.

This event is open to current ASLA members and their family/guests, as well as our 2019 Potomac Chapter sponsors.

Registration is now open.  Watch your email for your invitation.  Because this event is only open to current Potomac Chapter ASLA members, LA students, 2019 sponsors, and their families and friends, you must register from the email invitations.  Contact us at if you are missing your emailed invitation.

The National Mall Tidal Basin, a cherished part of “America’s Front Yard,” links its historic assets to the American ideal they collectively represent: freedom, democracy, and international cooperation. This complex cultural landscape features memorials to Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, as well as famous cherry trees that blossom each spring.

But this American icon is under threat.

Due to rising sea levels, the silt and water of the Potomac Flats make the Tidal Basin unstable; the conditions they create compromise both historic resources and visitors’ experiences. Each day at high tide, water floods the sidewalks surrounding the Tidal Basin, making them impassable and compromising the roots of the cherry trees.
