Wildlife in the Garden

The Botanical Garden provides habitat for many animals. Learn more about the 330+ species of animals that have been documented here and add your own observations to our iNaturalist project: Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden Fauna.

Enjoy your visit by looking for some of the birds that can be commonly seen here year-round. Birders may also enjoy exploring activities led by the Bruin Audubon Society and Birding Club, as well as the eBird list for the Garden.

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.
