Mission

The mission of the Houston Botanic Garden is to enrich life through discovery, education, and the conservation of plants and the natural environment.

Purpose

We will enrich people’s lives through outstanding displays and programs, serve as a model for sustainability, and inspire all who visit to become environmental stewards as they learn more about plants and the entire natural world. In the fourth largest metropolitan area in the country, our gardens will be places of great beauty providing an oasis for quiet contemplation, learning, inspiration, and research.
