Celebrate the birthday, anniversary or lifetime achievement of a loved one. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center’s Memorial and Tribute Program is a heartfelt way to show your appreciation.

Tribute and memorial gifts to support the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center may be given at any level. Donations directly support the continued maintenance of the Wildflower Center’s gardens, research, education and conservation programs. All gifts made in “memory of,” in “tribute to” or “in honor of” a loved one are acknowledged with cards of appreciation to the honored individual, their family or designated contact.

Tribute Opportunities

Tree Dedication – $2,500 to $5,000

With a gift of $2,500, you can dedicate a small, medium or large tree in the Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum. For $5,000, you can dedicate a large oak tree. A development team member will help you select a tree. Signage with information about the tree and your dedication will be placed near the tree. The tree dedication will last for the natural life of the tree. If a tree dies within two years of the dedication, the tree will be replaced at no additional cost.

Texas Hall of Heroes Tree Dedication – $25,000

With a gift of $25,000, you can dedicate a special oak tree in our Texas Hall of Heroes. The tree will be accompanied by a metal sign including information on the origin of the tree, as well as any personalized dedication you would like to make in honor or memory of your loved one. Texas Hall of Heroes tree dedications are perpetual and tree locations are permanent. Funds contributed towards Texas Hall of Hero trees will be directed towards the Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum Endowment, which is managed by the UT Investment Management Company (UTIMCO).

Gifts may be given in person, over the phone (512.232.0138) and or online.

The Wildflower Center reserves the right to move or relocate trees or benches if and when gardens are renovated or redesigned. We also reserve the right to limit access during concerts, private events or periods of construction, for safety and/or security reasons.
