Remember Lady Bird this holiday season

Ornament dedicated to former First Lady’s passion to preserve wildflowers and natural beauty

AUSTIN — Whether it’s for that die-hard Texan uncle, nature-loving friend, co-worker who cherishes all things collectible, or anyone in between, the Keep Texas Beautiful Special Edition Wildflower Ornament dedicated to the late Lady Bird Johnson makes a gift family and friends will treasure for years to come.

Keep Texas Beautiful (KTB), a nonprofit focused on beautification, litter prevention, and waste reduction, has dedicated its fourth edition ornament to Lady Bird in honor of her commitment to preserving our country’s natural beauty. More than any other individual, Lady Bird inspired not only Texans, but every American, to value wildflowers and the uniqueness they bring to communities.

The ornament, made of 24 karat plated gold, features a colorful bouquet of wildflowers imposed over the state of Texas. It makes a beautiful gift and can be used as a holiday decoration, tree ornament, or collectible to display year-round. Each ornament includes a gift box and pamphlet detailing Lady Bird’s commitment to preserving native plants. Now, you can order your own copy and remember “Texas’ own Wildflower.”

The ornament was designed by Nelda Laney, who has designed ornaments for numerous Texas organizations and causes over the years, including KTB’s first, second, and third edition ornaments.

The purchase of the ornament is a gift that truly keeps giving back to Texas as proceeds help fund KTB’s statewide network of affiliates who focus on environmental and community improvement programs.

Orders for all four editions of the KTB ornament can be made online at or over the phone at 1-800-CLEAN-TX.

Keep Texas Beautiful, a statewide grassroots community improvement and environmental nonprofit, strives to educate and engage Texans to take responsibility for improving their community environment. KTB and its more than 340 community affiliates work to ensure that every Texan has the opportunity to take individual responsibility for making Texas the cleanest, most beautiful state in the nation.
