Mt. Washington Preservation Trust is a non-profit organization established in 1989 by residents who wanted to protect wooded areas and green space within their Baltimore City neighborhood. The organization maintains parcels of public green space and encourages private property owners to retain underdeveloped parcels of land. It holds conservation easements for over 25 intentionally underdeveloped acres and maintains approximately 40 community gardens, including the Mount Washington Arboretum, a one-acre project started in 1999.
The collection was donated to the University of Baltimore by Robert D. Feinstein, MWPT Secretary, on January 25, 2002.
