Request a Speaker


Representatives of the Houston Botanic Garden are available to give presentations – from a general overview of the Garden itself to more specific horticultural topics – to gardening clubs, civic associations, etc.

Please let us know of your interest by completing the following speaker request form. A member of our staff will review your request and follow-up to schedule. 

NOTE: In lieu of a speaker honorarium, the Garden asks that groups to which we give a presentation make a gift to support the operations of the Garden, based upon the role/title of the presenter.

  • $50 – General overview presentation by volunteer ambassador
  • $100 – General overview presentation by director-level, non-horticulture staff member, with possibility for a little more depth/specificity in non-scientific areas
  • $150 – Presentation by horticulture staff member, with possibility for specific botanic/scientific focus tailored to the audience interests
  • $250 – Presentation by Garden president, with possibility for unique tailoring to audience
Are there additional dates that would work if the first preference is unavailable?*
