The American Public Gardens Association acknowledged the Wildflower Center’s sustainability efforts with garden profiles in two categories of its Sustainability Index during the summer of 2020. The index is a suite of attributes intended to inspire gardens to advance their own sustainability programs to further their missions while connecting to local, national and global sustainability efforts.

The Wildflower Center was recognized for excellence in the following:

Water Quality and Consumption

Biodiversity and Conservation

Andrea DeLong-Amaya, the Center’s director of horticulture, says the APGA profiles validate our ongoing efforts to lead plant conservation and sustainability in Texas and beyond; she also noted they highlight the Center as a truly outstanding organization and reflect the collective efforts of staff across departments.
