Send Lady Bird a Note
She was a shy, small town girl from East Texas who developed into a leading advocate for nature and for the underprivileged of her time. She became known as the wife of the 36th president, the CEO of a Texas broadcasting empire, a canny investor and an environmentalist. She planted flowers and trees so others would see the beauty of nature. When we see bluebonnets and wildflowers along the roadside, we can thank Lady Bird for that. But those who met Lady Bird Johnson were also struck by her graciousness and interest in sharing in their lives.
The state of Texas has declared 2012 Lady Bird Johnson Centennial Year in honor of the 100th anniversary of her birth. As we celebrate the founder of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center for the national treasure she was, we welcome you to send her a birthday note or share your favorite Lady Bird stories by submitting them below.
