Lady Bird Day at the Wildflower Center

Come enjoy activities and free admission in honor of our Environmental First Lady. 

Each year, the Wildflower Center honors our namesake and founder and all that she did for our nation’s treasured environment on Lady Bird Day. We invite the community to celebrate Mrs. Johnson’s environmental legacy and the legislation that she inspired. With her influence, President Johnson’s administration enacted more than 200 environmental laws with lasting national and local impact, including the 1965 Highway Beautification Act.
