NATIONAL LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE MONTH
Efficient and creative design is recognized from walkways, playgrounds, neighborhoods, and roadways; use #WLAM2017 on social media when you share a picture of your favorite landscape architecture design

NATIONAL SAFE DIGGING MONTH
Call 811 before any digging project (e.g. putting in a fence, planting a tree, building a deck); every six minutes an underground utility line is damaged because someone decided to dig without calling 811
