Your Gift Supports the Garden
The San Antonio Botanical Garden is a horticultural resource for South Texas, showcasing a wide variety of plants you can’t find anywhere else. It requires daily care including watering, pruning, weeding, mulching, thinning, and even harvesting, to keep it looking its best.
“I would like to thank everyone at the garden for working so hard to keep it beautiful. It is our escape from stress...When we are there, nothing else matters.” – Leah Myer, frequent visitor

Your Gift Supports Conservation and Research
The San Antonio Botanical Garden was among the first group of organizations to join the Center for Plant Conservation (CPC) network in 1984. As the primary institution responsible for 13 of some of the rarest native plant species in the United States, our plant research and conservation efforts may represent the final bulwark against the extinction of a species.
“Working with the CPC and other conservation organizations, we can better ensure that Texas rare and endangered plants are not lost forever.” – G. Shannon Smith, Ph.D., Director of Rare Plants and Research
