Join lawn and landscape professionals, educators, students, lawmakers, community groups and job-seekers across the nation as the industry launches Landscape Career Day: Grow Your Future, an initiative aimed at inspiring the next generation of landscape professionals as well as those who are currently workforce-ready!
What is Landscape Career Day?
Landscape Career Day is a nationwide celebration of the rewarding careers within the landscape industry where lawn and landscape professionals invite their communities — including students, educators, community groups, advisors, lawmakers and officials — to participate in a collective effort to:
- Enhance the public’s awareness and perception of careers within the landscape industry
- Educate and engage key audiences from communities across the country
- Grow the lawn and landscape profession’s workforce
- Inspire and cultivate the next generation of landscape professionals
Whether it’s a behind-the-scenes tour of a lawn and landscape business, a community service event at a park, career fair or interactive programming at a local school, Landscape Career Day will offer all who participate the opportunity to learn about exciting career paths, scholarships, and training and resources available to them – all while getting hands-on experience as they see, touch and feel the profession in action!
When is Landscape Career Day?
While most Landscape Career Day events will take place in March and April, lawn and landscape companies can plan their events for dates that work for their audience and company goals.
If you’re interested in participating in Landscape Career Day, keep an eye out for events in your area by visiting local lawn and landscape companies’ websites and social media channels for updates. You can also contact the National Association of Landscape Professionals at Jenn@LandscapeProfessionals.org to inquire about events happening locally.
