Visit the UCLA Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden and enjoy the free public education programs offered there.

Tours are offered on a reservation basis for groups of 10 or more during the week and free drop-in tours are offered on the first Saturday of each month (this enables visitors of all ages to enjoy a guided tour without having to make advance reservations).

Tours begin at the Nest, an outdoor classroom with semicircular bench seating, located in the northern end of the garden near the Botany Building. They last approximately one hour, and are automatically canceled in the event of rain. Basic botanical concepts are introduced along with interesting historical facts and unusual characteristics of several rare plant specimens.

Parking on the UCLA campus is $10. There is also parking on the street or in lots in Westwood Village. Activities within the garden are limited to those that are compatible with the quiet, natural surroundings and that do not disturb others. Visitors may eat on the grounds, but are asked to dispose of all trash when they leave. Please note the garden does not have drinking fountains or bathroom facilities. Visitors may bring their own drinking water and use the bathroom facilities in the building across the street.
