BACKGROUND

Mission: The Landscape Ethic Committee strengthens communities by promoting sustainable and resilient urban landscapes.

Vision: We envision a time when Southern California landscapes:
   
reflect the site and surrounding climate, geography, and soils
protect and restore native biodiversity and instill a sense of place
improve water quality and supplies
reduce energy and fossil fuel consumption
improve air quality and heat island effect
promote human health, well-being, and economic vitality

Strategy: The Landscape Ethic Committee works with industry professionals to provide the information, skills, and inspiration needed to ensure that sites are designed, installed and managed sustainably.
Our collaborative efforts seek to inform landscape architects and designers, civil engineers, policy makers, planners, project managers, builders, installers, parks and public works professionals, and maintenance contractors. We respond to current industry needs and frequently provide:
   
low cost / high impact educational materials and seminars
landscape design reviews for commercial, industrial, institutional sites
model landscape specifications, plant palettes, and maintenance plans
expert review, input, and testimony for landscape policies and guidelines

Regular contributors include expert landscape design and management representatives from the California Native Plant Society, City of Los Angeles, Council for Watershed Health, Ecotone Studios, Elemental Landscapes, G3 LA, Mia Lehrer and Associates, Mountains Recreation & Conservation Authority, Natural History Museum of LA County, North East Trees, Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden, Terra Designs, Theodore Payne Foundation, TreePeople, Trust for Public Land, Rivers & Mountains Conservancy, University of California Los Angeles, Watershed Conservation Authority, and many others.
