About Us

Chinook Landscape Architecture, LLC is a locally owned landscape architecture firm with a specialization in environmental restoration and reclamation projects. Founded in 2017 by Jon Altschuld, RLA, Chinook prides itself on working closely with clients to develop unique and creative solutions to complicated projects.

Through all of these projects, Chinook strives to create stronger connections between people and places, particularly environmentally important ones. We believe that we have a responsibility as landscape architects to create sustainable designs that allow future generations to continue to enjoy and experience the unique ecosystems and environments that our natural world has to offer.


Often, this involves working with emerging technologies such as 3D modeling and visualization, drones/UAV data collection, mobile GIS applications, and interactive website design. Chinook embraces these technologies and its founder, Jon Altschuld, regularly presents and teaches at universities, conferences, and trade shows.


Chinook is registered as an Emerging Small Business (ESB) with CDOT.
