About The Friends of Rawlings Conservatory

The Friends of the Rawlings Conservatory is dedicated to developing and promoting the public’s enjoyment, appreciation, and understanding of plants and their different environments from around the world through educational programming, exhibits and events at the Rawlings Conservatory.

Since 1998, as the former Baltimore Conservatory Association, we have helped bring the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens into greater public awareness. Today, we need your support to continue our efforts to keep the Conservatory growing for generations to come!

As a member, donor or volunteer, you can help secure the future of this important Baltimore landmark and be a part of the growing community of Friends dedicated to its survival and growth. We have some very special events and educational projects, such as our Little Leaves educational initiative that brings Baltimore City school second graders to the Conservatory for a half-day of learning, as well as fun cultural events that we hope will inspire your participation and support of this very special and unique public institution in the heart of the City of Baltimore.
