Giving Tree

Select a specially designed bookmark, which is yours to keep, from our literature-inspired Giving Tree, and make a donation to the Wildflower Center. Each gift was thoughtfully chosen from a list of items that will help the Center reach new audiences and fulfill our mission. Through your generosity, underserved kids will have the opportunity to attend summer camp or visit on a school trip, Nature Nights will be accessible for the hearing impaired, and gardeners will be able to transport plants and supplies to the far reaches of the property with pedal power.

Bubbles & Bling

Purchase a glass of bubbly for $25, and you just might win some bluebonnet bling by the end of the evening! With each glass of champagne purchased, you will receive one chance to enter a drawing for a stunningly beautiful bluebonnet pendant, featuring Sri Lankan blue sapphires and tsavorite garnets dangling from a 22-inch, 14-karat gold chain. Created especially for the Wildflower Center and donated by Kirk Root Designs.

* In the event of severe weather and cancellation, we will consider your ticket price general support toward the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.
