We are pleased to announce that Taking Care of Texas Founder, former First Lady Laura Bush, will keynote the Grand Opening of the Texas Botanical Gardens on October 11, 2014. “We’re thrilled to join in the Grand Opening celebrations. This project is teaching Texans more about our state’s rich environment and history, while spurring economic growth,” said Erin Franz, Executive Director of Taking Care of Texas. Founded by Mrs. Bush to further conservation efforts across the state, Taking Care of Texas has been a key collaborator and partner to the Texas Botanical Gardens & Native American Interpretive Center since 2011.
Mrs. Bush joins an outstanding line up of speakers including Congressman Michael Conaway and Michael McCullough from The Meadows Foundation. We’re excited to welcome Mrs. Bush to Goldthwaite for a very important day in its history!
