Welcome to the DDA Community Forum. Here, organizations and individuals have the opportunity to obtain and share information about creating, managing, and enjoying America’s public landscapes. Byways, parks, and trails are among the types of landscapes discussed and shared here.

Emphasis is placed on effective communication with visitors and users of public landscapes through wayshowing, interpretation, and hospitality outreach.

The DDA Community Forum is sponsored by David L. Dahlquist Associates, LLC, a professional consulting service firm led by David L. Dahlquist who shares more than 30 years of experience in planning and design of programs and places, facilitating public involvement, and coaching the staffs and leaders of organizations that provide visitor experiences through the public landscapes they steward.
