It is your chance to shine, be with friends and support one of the most beautiful and exotic collections of plants in Baltimore and the region.

Saturday, October 5th, 7 – 11 p.m. 

 This memorable night will help support the preservation and growth of Baltimore City’s cultural gem.  The Conservatory is a stunning example of Victorian architecture designed by George A. Frederick, and is one of the oldest surviving glass conservatories in the United States. The Conservatory can only survive the next 125 years with public support that will help us: maintain the buildings and their exotic plant exhibits; create seasonal flower displays; and, provide quality educational and recreational programming for our community.

This event is presented by the Rawlings Conservatory, Baltimore City Department of Recreation and Parks, and the Baltimore Conservatory Association, Inc.
