After decades of neglect, the DOPC was formed in 2010 to restore, promote, and maintain Dumbarton Oaks Park, now and for future generations. In the heart of the city, the park is a 27-acre wild garden oasis designed in 1921 by Beatrix Farrand, America’s first female landscape architect. Through a public-private partnership with the National Park Service, DOPC mobilizes a vast number of volunteers to remove invasive plants, mitigate urban stormwater, and engage the next generation of environmental stewards in the service of restoring Farrand’s masterwork. Its Leave No Child Inside program engages youth of all backgrounds and identities in recreation, education, and stewardship that benefits the kids and the park. In all, more than 93,000 volunteer hours have helped restore 16 acres of meadows, waterfalls, woodlands, and historic structures. You can ensure this national treasure endures for yet another century.
