Living Witness on Permanent Display, Hall of Texas Heroes, Wildflower Center

The Living Witness trees and their stories now have a permanent home at the Hall of Texas Heroes at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin. Two weeks ago, the Wildflower Center opened its newest addition, the Arboretum, a 16-acre natural area dedicated to Texas trees.  The centerpiece of the preserve is the circular Hall of Texas Heroes, where over 30 historic trees are being regrown. Each tree, still a seedling, is accompanied by helpful signage of the image and story from Living Witness. It is an incredible honor to be associated with an institution as worthwhile as the Wildflower Center. The Arboretum was made possible by a tremendous gift from Mollie Steves Zachry and her husband. We are fortunate to have people like the Zachry’s and institutions like the  Wildflower Center dedicated to keeping Texas natural wonders alive.
