In the heart of L.A.’s urban center, the Natural Gardens at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County offer visitors a chance to experience local wildlife within the city’s boundaries. Butterflies, hummingbirds and other natural life make their home among the Garden’s local plants, creating a window into the natural world inside of the city’s urban center. The Garden itself serves a multifunctional purpose, as scientists and educators use the space alongside visitors. The Nature Gardens were designed by Mia Lehrer and Associates, in collaboration with the Natural History Museum staff, CO Architects and Cordell Corporation.
