She was a VISIONARY.

Lady Bird Johnson inspired change in our world.


Mrs. Johnson had a vision to make the world better - more “beautiful” - one plant at a time. She recognized that wildflowers and other native plants can lift the spirit and that conserving them and using them in our everyday landscapes is critical to our future. She established the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center to realize this dream.



The environment is where we all meet, where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing all of us share. It is not only a mirror of ourselves, but a focusing lens on what we can become.
— Lady Bird Johnson

Lady Bird Johnson worked tirelessly for the preservation of wild landscapes and the environment. More than 200 laws related to the environment were passed during the Johnson Administration, many of which were influenced by Mrs. Johnson's work. Among the major legislative initiatives were the Wilderness Act of 1964, the Land and Water Conservation Fund, the Wild and Scenic Rivers Program, the 1965 Highway Beautification Act and many additions to the
National Park system. 


Healthy landscapes matter to wildflowers, pollinators, birds, kids, trees and
everyone and everything.


She left a LEGACY.

In 1982, Lady Bird Johnson established the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center with Helen Hayes.
