Where the Wild Things Grow

Where the Wild Things Grow - A Campaign for Houston's Arboretum

Implementation of the new master plan will be our organization’s primary focus over the next decade.

A capital campaign is underway to fund implementation of the master plan.

The master plan includes:

  • Construction of a brand new entrance and additional parking off the 610 loop
  • A new Ecosystem Management Center to support our conservation initiatives
  • Renovation of the existing Woodway entrance with expanded parking
  • Creation of two educational wetlands that double as storm water retention
  • Landscape restoration of the northern third of the property
  • New trail experiences
  • Renovation of the existing building to expand educational programming
  • Construction of a new administrative building to house staff and volunteers
  • A state-of-the-art nature playscape

Thank you to our many donors!
