The Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden (MEMBG) is a 7.5 acre garden on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, California which contains a diverse collection of plant species from around the world. Over 3000 types of plants grow in the garden and a wide range of environments are found within its borders, from the sunny, dry desert and Mediterranean sections on the eastern edge to the shady, lush interior. A stream and series of ponds run through the center of the garden, home to koi and turtles. MEMBG is devoted to showcasing the beauty, utility and incredible diversity of the plant kingdom to the UCLA community and the public at large.

CLOSURE ANNOUNCEMENT: The Patio picnic area will be closed until further notice due to construction. Entry to the garden through the service road will be blocked for the duration of this project. The Garden will remain open during construction and can be accessed from the Tiverton and South Gates. We look forward to opening our new and improved picnic area in June 2017.
