Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center

Studying ecological restoration in Texas

Posted on 17 July 2014

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Centre, Texas has a research program that examines fire effects on natural systems and as a tool for restoration. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center became an organized research unit of The University of Texas at Austin in 2006.

Research results have been tested in real-world applications including restoration of public land, private developments and governmental projects. We share these learning’s about improved ecological landscape design through public, professional and academic education. Past research projects include the use of prescribed burns to control invasive species, the development of native polycultural turfgrass, native plant performance on green roofs, rapid roadside re-vegetation using native species and erosion control using native species and compost.
