MEMORIAL & TRIBUTE GIVING

General Giving

Celebrate the birthday, anniversary or lifetime of achievement of a loved one by giving a gift to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. Donations directly support the continued maintenance of Center gardens, research, and education and conservation programs. All gifts are acknowledged with cards of appreciation to the honored individual, their family or a designated contact.

Dedications

With the help of Development and Horticulture staff, the Wildflower Center can help you pick the perfect tree or garden bed to celebrate your loved one. Dedications must be arranged through the Development Department, and the Center reserves the right to limit access to these dedication spots during concerts, private events or periods of construction for the safety and security of our guests. Gifts made towards dedications are tax deductible.

Tree Dedications

With a gift of $2,500, you can dedicate a small- or medium-sized tree in the Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum. Dedications last for the life of the tree. (If the tree dies within two years of the dedication, the Wildflower Center will replace the tree at no additional cost.) A small plaque with your loved one’s name will be placed near the tree to celebrate the dedication.

With a gift of $5,000, you can dedicate a large tree in the Mollie Steves Zachry Texas Arboretum. Dedications last for the life of the tree. (If the tree dies within two years of the dedication, the Wildflower Center will replace the tree at no additional cost.) A small plaque with your loved one’s name will be placed near the tree to celebrate the dedication.

With a gift of $25,000, you can dedicate a historic oak tree in the Hall of Texas Heroes. A Hall of Texas Heroes dedication is perpetual, and the location of the tree is permanent. A small plaque with your loved one’s name will be placed near the tree to celebrate the dedication.

Garden Bed Dedications

With a gift of $1,000, you can dedicate a garden bed in the Theme Gardens of the Wildflower Center. The various beds, some of which change according to the season, showcase many types of native plants. Dedication activation is subject to the date of pledge completion and will last for a total of 12 months after the date of that activation. A small plaque with the name of your loved one will be placed in the garden bed to celebrate the dedication. You will have an opportunity to renew your dedication with an additional donation four months prior to your dedication’s expiration.

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