For the past 20 years Cathrine Deino Blake has been the Stanford University landscape architect for the 500-acre campus, widely recognized for its beauty and landscape integrity. The Landscape White Paper she developed is the guiding philosophy for all work done on the campus. During the university's $5 billion building program, which has involved the nation's most prestigious design firms, she has been the client representative solely responsible for bridging the heritage of Olmsted and Church with modern environmental concerns. Her leadership has raised awareness of the value of the campus landscape and raised the bar for all landscape architects. She initiates and manages a landscape infrastructure project budget of $3.5 million per year. # 28681 Category: Service K e n n e t h B a t e s Durango Custom Works LLC, Durango, Colo. Kenneth Bates has served ASLA throughout his career and has brought greater attention to his chapter's awards program. He's credited with halting a state deregulation threat in 2011, and thereby galvanizing the chapter's membership as stewards of public health, safety and welfare. To him, every venue is an opportunity to advance the profession—from his extensive community service to volunteer work within ASLA at all levels. His government advocacy efforts and ability to expand national recognition of landscape architects and students have proven him a champion of landscape architecture. His leadership, including contributions as chair of ASLA's Chapter Presidents Council, serves as a fitting example of how selfless dedication can raise public awareness of the value of landscape architecture. # 28680
