Wildlife in the Garden

The Botanical Garden provides habitat for many animals. Learn more about the 275+ species of animals that have been documented here and add your own observations to our iNaturalist project: Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden Fauna. Birders may also enjoy the eBird list for this hotspot.

Enjoy your visit by looking for some of the birds that can be commonly seen here year-round.

Please respect wildlife by giving them space and not touching them or their nests.

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.
