Who we are

We are a collaboration of individuals dedicated to engaging our visitors in learning about plants, preserving Thelma and Charles Mercer’s legacy by providing financial support to Mercer Botanic Gardens, inspiring future generations and continuing the rebuilding of Mercer Botanic Gardens following the devastation left by Hurricane Harvey. We are a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization partnering with Mercer Botanic Gardens.


Sorry, the Gardens are closed temporarily while repairs are underway. Upon reopening, hours will be reposted. The TMS Offices are temporarily relocated but can be reached by calling 713-274-4166.

Gardens are Closed On: Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve & Day, and New Year's Day. Admission to the gardens is always free.

Raise the Roof Campaign

One key structural result of the historic April 18, 2016 Tax-Day floods, was the loss of a wooden footbridge connecting Story Lake Garden to the rest of Mercer. Harris County Precinct 4 will replace the old bridge this summer, and we are raising money to build a roof over it to make it a true gateway to Storey Lake.
