The Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy is a non-profit organization whose mission, in partnership with the National Park Service, is the restoration and maintenance of Dumbarton Oaks Park, formerly a part of one of America’s leading landscape designs, created by one of America’s most important (and first female professional) landscape architect.
This multi-year effort aims to put the park on a long-term sustainable basis by tackling fundamental problems. It thus must involve not only the vigorous volunteer efforts we have mounted (such as clearing of invasive foliage), but also engineering and construction projects to solve water run-off and erosion challenges, to repair damaged rock-built waterfalls and ponds, and to restore and if necessary resurface trails. Those projects are beyond the scope of volunteer “sweat equity” and require funding for professional contracted services.
We therefore need and sincerely urge your help to make such projects possible which will bring back this landmark of American design and enhance its beauty and recreational value to the Washington community.
The Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy is registered as a Section 501(c)3 charitable organization.
Contributions are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged in writing to the donor.
