Parks, Trails and
Natural Areas

Stewardship is the key to L/KLA’s philosophy and practice, our foundation and outlook. In an era of limited resources—natural and economic—L/KLA brings skills and understanding on how to best manage and leverage a place’s assets while adjusting to the realities of capacity and site conditions. 

L/KLA has completed Natural Resource Management Plans for sites with rare and endangered species and important cultural resources and human interest; developed best practices for site management for treeless areas and homeowners; co-founded the Northern Virginia Urban Forestry Roundtable; and is an early implementor of bioinfiltration and complete streets practices.
