Pelosi: FEMA Releases $1.4 Million Grant for Retrofit of Conservatory of Flowers

October 29, 2004

San Francisco -- House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi announced today that the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has released $1.4 million in Hazard Mitigation Grant Program funds to the City of San Francisco for additional costs on the retrofit of the Conservatory of Flowers, located in Golden Gate Park.

"The Conservatory of Flowers is a national treasure that is close to the hearts of many San Franciscans. With additional support, FEMA established itself as a true partner in this endeavor," Pelosi said.

The grant money is intended for a structural retrofit of the conservatory, which consists of a central dome with entry vestibule and two greenhouse wings. The dome and wings are large open spaces, providing horticultural exhibits for student groups and tourists. Listed in the National Register for Historic Places, the conservatory also houses and preserves endangered plant species.
