Like most high schools kids, Jason Miller didn’t know exactly what he wanted to do with his life as he headed into college. After some trial and error, he eventually found his true love – landscape architecture.
So as part of April’s Landscape Architecture Month, Jay wanted to share his love of the profession with students like him, bringing some awareness to a career path they may have never considered. He shared his love of the job with students at Pelham High School in New Hampshire, not only telling them a little about what it’s like to be a landscape architect, but also letting them give it a try.
Jay had the students design their own parks, making decisions about what features to include and why. The project gave them a flavor for the job while reinforcing a lot of the skills and subjects they study in school, from math, to biology, to art.
