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 Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory & Botanic Gardens in Baltimore.
About Us

The Friends of the Rawlings Conservatory have been actively involved in preserving and supporting the Rawlings Conservatory since 1998. We partner with the City of Baltimore and other community organizations to encourage visitors from near and far to take advantage of all that the Conservatory has to offer.


The Conservatory offers a unique opportunity to introduce the community to the diversity, beauty and importance of plants in our world. Our Little Leaves educational program is a living classroom for Baltimore City second grade students. Your financial support is crucial to the survival of this valuable program.


The Conservatory is open year round for visitors to experience wonderful exhibits, seasonal flower displays and special events. Visit the Rawlings site for a complete listing of coming events. Sign up below for our online newsletter so that you’ll be among the first to know about the terrific friend- and fund-raising events we sponsor to benefit the Conservatory.  Click here to see a list of events.
