Enjoy Spring at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

If you're looking for something to do in Austin, Texas, consider spending a few fun-filled hours at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.

Become introduced to the beauty and diversity of wildflowers and other native plants, and enjoy beautiful gardens, walking trails, and the Texas Arboretum.

Here are some of the things you can see and do during your visit:

In the Central Gardens, you can find The Meadows, the Woodland Garden, and the Ann and O.J. Weber Butterfly Garden. In the spring and fall, The Meadows showcases beautiful Central Texas wildflowers in a kaleidoscope of colors. Those who explore the south meadow in the summer will likely see a host of Queen Butterflies fluttering about. The Woodland Garden is home to a gently flowing stream, coral honeysuckle, pepper vines, and a limestone area where you can see snowballs and rare Texas Madrone. The Ann and O.J. Weber Butterfly Garden is a butterfly habitat that's used to attract pollinators. It contains approximately 350 plant species as well as shaded areas where you can relax while watching the butterflies.

You can also visit trails such as the Savanna Meadow Trail and the John Barr Trail. The Savanna Meadow Trail meanders through colorful wildflower meadows and showcases an authentic Texas windmill. Hikers along the John Barr Trail this spring will see blooming prickly pear, bitterweed, bluebonnets, coreopsis, damanita, and pavonia.

The Texas Arboretum spans sixteen acres and many visitors enjoy its 1.07 mile looping path that leads through wildflowers and native grasses. Another of the Arboretum's highlights is the Hall of Texas Heroes. It’s the home to an impressive collection of live oaks that descended from well-known oak trees from across the Lone Star state.
