ASLA Elevates 27 Members to the Council of Fellows
The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) has elevated 27 members as ASLA Fellows for their exceptional contributions to the landscape architecture profession and society at large. Election to the ASLA Council of Fellows is among the highest honors the ASLA bestows on members and is based on their works, leadership/management, knowledge, and service.
ASLA Fellows will be elevated during a special investiture ceremony at the 2022 Conference on Landscape Architecture.
Among this year's class of ASLA Fellows is Studio HIP's own Jennifer Nitzky.

Nomination in Service by the New York Chapter
For more than twenty-five years, Jennifer Nitzky has worked with numerous community groups and organizations to elevate the quality of life, advocate for urban green space and pollinator habitat, and raise awareness of the profession. Her service includes volunteer and pro bono work on ten different interdisciplinary organizations and boards. She has served on the Executive Committee of the New York Chapter of the ASLA for over ten years. Concurrently, she has served as a representative of the Chapter on the Fine Arts Federation of New York board, where she has helped the private, public, civic, and community sectors solve a range of important built environment issues—from advancing sustainability and stewardship practices to promoting more equitable spaces and design processes for diverse communities. At the City College of New York’s Master of Landscape Architecture program, she has engaged with graduate students to advance the profession and support the program’s diverse students. Jennifer was instrumental in the efforts to preserve the Russell Page Garden at the Frick Collection. Since 2018, Jennifer has served on the NYC Pollinator Working Group, educating the public about the importance of supporting native pollinators. Jennifer’s service to the profession cuts a wide swath as she has collaborated with many groups, elevated awareness of landscape architecture outside the profession, and inspired the next generation of environmental stewards.
