The mission of the American Society of Landscape Architects is to lead, educate and participate in the careful stewardship, wise planning, and artful design of our cultural and natural environments.  The Twin States Conference is a partnership of the Mississippi and Alabama Chapters of ASLA, established to promote these goals; to showcase the beauty, culture and history of each state; and is the Chapters’ primary fundraising activity each year.
