This Season in the Nature Gardens

The Museum's gardens are new every minute. Constantly, wildlife is stopping by: breeding, eating, and nesting. The ever-changing outdoor space is also a hub for the investigation of L.A. nature and is ripe with surprises for our wild neighbors, and you, every season of the year.
