The mission of Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy is to restore, conserve and promote Dumbarton Oaks Park.
What We Do
Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy is a charitable nonprofit established in 2010 that is working to restore one of the United States of America's ten greatest garden landscape designs, the 27-acre Dumbarton Oaks Park (the Park), formerly part of the Dumbarton Oaks estate in Georgetown, Washington, DC. The estate is a milestone in the history of American landscape architecture and a landmark in our social history, as it represents the finest work of Beatrix Farrand, America's first professional female landscape architect. Farrand was one of eleven founding members (the only female founding member) of the American Society of Landscape Architects and is regarded as one of America's foremost landscape practitioners of the 20th century. She shattered the glass ceiling in her profession, and this is her crowning achievement.
Dumbarton Oaks Park Conservancy provides inclusive environmental education programs for all ages to engage the community in restoration, conservation and stewardship efforts.
