The American Horticultural Society invites you to join them in Austin, Texas for the 2015 National Children & Youth Garden Symposium (NCYGS), with local co-hosts the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and the International Junior Master Gardener Program.

- Experience Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center including the recently opened Luci and Ian Family Garden, a native plant garden for families and a pilot project of the Sustainable SITES Initiative.
- Enjoy Austin, “Live Music Capital of the World”, and its booming arts, culture, and local foods scenes.
- Share ideas, success stories, and inspiration with like-minded colleagues from across the nation.
