In February 2013, twenty professionals and volunteers from the American Society of Landscape Architects, the National Park Service, and the Great Shasta Rail Trail Core Team met in Sacramento, CA for a day-long design workshop. The volunteer landscape architects from the Northern California Chapter included Dave Mitchell, Chris Kent and John Stevenson. The vision for the project is to develop an 80-mile scenic multi-use trail along an existing rail bed between the towns of McCloud and Burney, near Mt. Shasta, California. The workshop focused on developing solutions for the project’s design challenges and generating visuals which communicate these ideas to the public. The workshop capitalized on background and planning work done by the project Core Team and the creativity, collaboration and enthusiasm of the workshop participants. Community service work done through the existing partnership between ASLA and NPS is being highlighted during ASLA’s Year of Public Service. For more information, please visit the links below:
