In 2003, the Conservatory of Flowers reopened following a $25 million renovation campaign. We are forever grateful to the individual donors, foundations and corporations who rescued this iconic landmark after the devastating storm of 1995.


We need your financial support to keep our 140-year-old wood and glass Conservatory and its world-class botanical collections vibrant, well maintained, and welcoming to our current visitors and for generations to come.

Supporters like you provide the foundation for work happening every day. Help take us into the next 140 years.

Help us connect our community to plants by
becoming a Conservatory volunteer

The Conservatory could not function without a wonderful cadre of passionate, knowledgeable, and generous volunteers. New volunteers commit to two shifts per month for one year. In return, the Conservatory offers free lectures, social events, and a discount in the gift shop.

Our volunteer programs:

  • Interpretive Volunteers

    Create a variety of opportunities for Conservatory visitors to discover and learn about tropical plants by answering questions, leading conversations, and facilitating hands-on engagement. Spark curiosity, share information, and connect people with plants in a place of exceptional beauty!

  • Jungle Guides

    Lead 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students as they visit the Conservatory on field trips. Guides teach small groups of students as part of the curriculum-based Rainforest Adaptations program, in which students see and experience what they are learning about in science class. Note: As of 2022 this program is currently paused.
