In celebration of the 75th anniversary of ASPRS, our own Marc Cheves (Editor of American Surveyor Magazine) paid a visit to the ASPRA HQ in Bethesda, MD and had a sit down with ASPRS Executive Director Jim Plasker. ASPRS is located on a beautiful 39-acre campus, along with several other environmental resource organizations, including the Society of American Foresters. Also located on the property is a summer house that once belonged to Gilbert Grosvenor, the founder of the National Geographic Society. To this day, a great-great grandson of Alexander Graham Bell still lives adjacent to the property. ASPRS owns its own office condo and until the recent economic downturn, was involved in the potential sale of the entire property for use as the flagship campus of an international education organization.
