Historic American Landscapes Survey

The Historic American Landscapes Survey is a program administrated by the National Park Service (NPS) to document historic landscapes in the United States and its territories. It was established in the year 2000 as a close collaboration between NPS, the American Society of Landscape Architects, and the Library of Congress to record the outstanding historic places that create our national, regional and local identity for the present and for future generations.

invites you to take the


2017 HALS Challenge

By documenting a City or Town Park

The National HALS Challenge by the National Park Service is in its 8th year. Preparing a short format history for a historic site near you is a great way to become familiar with HALS and to preserve the knowledge of the history of the park forever at the Library of Congress. The deadline for submittals is July 31, 2017 and the best time of year to take photos is just around the corner!

See this link for further instructions and please contact our Alabama ASLA Chapter HALS Liaison, Birgit Kibelka, if you have any questions.
