Recognize someone special by making a gift in their honor or memory to the Houston Arboretum & Nature Center. The Arboretum is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and tribute gifts are tax-deductible. Your gift supports the continued growth, preservation efforts, and ongoing operations of the Arboretum.
The Arboretum’s Tribute Giving program has been temporarily put on hold. Please check back soon for more information.
Buttonbush Tribute Boardwalk Plank
Honor or remember a loved one with an engraved plank on our Buttonbush Trail, which winds through one of the Arboretum’s beautiful wetlands. Planks are $1,500 and will accommodate two lines of 42 characters of text each (including spaces and punctuation).
For more information or if you have questions about your plank, please email the Advancement Director.
A tribute bench at the Arboretum is the perfect way to honor or remember a loved one. Each 5 foot teak bench costs $10,000 and includes a plaque with text of your choosing. An Arboretum staff member will work with you to determine the best location for your bench. Your purchase also includes a complimentary one year Individual Membership to the Arboretum.
Please email the Advancement Director to confirm bench placement and plaque text, or if you have questions about your bench.
The Nature Center accepts donations in any amount to honor or memorialize an individual. Both the recipient and donor will be acknowledged; we will notify your special person or that person’s family with a card informing them of your tribute gift.
