The Wildflower Center offers abundant opportunities to learn about Texas native plants, gardening, nature art, photography, writing and more. We offer our very popular Native Plant Gardening Certificate through UT Informal Classes.
Classes generally happen during spring and fall, with other programs occurring throughout the year.
