You are standing at the entrance of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center where lovely plantings, arching aqueducts and wide oak trees welcome butterflies and birds as well as human admirers. The entire Wildflower Center is a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat.

Take note of the founder's stone and the entry cistern. The entry cistern evokes the old days when thrifty and thirsty Texans collected every drop of rainwater. This cistern holds 12,000 gallons and is just one component of the Wildflower Center's rainwater harvesting operation.
