Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center Hours, Prices, and Events
Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin was founded in 1982 by the former first lady of the United States and her friend Helen Hayes. Mrs. Johnson was passionate about preserving America's landscapes, with a special love for her native Texas plant life. She developed the Wildflower Center to reconnect people with nature and to educate them on enhancing their own home landscapes with local, native plants.
Visitors to the center can enjoy beautiful botanical gardens that demonstrate the best uses of native Texas plants to support wildlife and sustain the health of the land.
