David Olsen, a longtime member of ASLA, died unexpectedly on August 22. A Bend native and University of Oregon graduate, Dave led the landscape architecture group at HHPR and he recently served as chair of the Oregon Chapter’s High Desert Section. Many in our landscape architecture community knew Dave and worked with him. He will be missed.
