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 Gate and Service Road Gate are open intermittently, depending on ongoing construction on the Patio. The South Gate, North Gate and Main Gate along Tiverton have no expected closures.

The UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden acknowledges the Gabrielino/Tongva peoples as the traditional land caretakers of Tovaangar (the Los Angeles basin and So. Channel Islands). As a promoter of nature at a California land grant institution, we pay our respects to the Honuukvetam (Ancestors), ‘Ahiihirom (Elders) and ‘Eyoohiinkem (our relatives/relations) past, present and emerging.
