Outside, we're building the Nature Gardens. This 3.5-acre living wilderness experience will be a habitat for animals and a "field station," where our scientists and visitors will work together.
In the Nature Lab, the Nature Gardens' indoor component, visitors get up close and personal with L.A. wildlife and learn the stories of the creatures that share our space.
Our Becoming Los Angeles exhibit, which will open July 2013, will explore the natural and cultural history of Southern California, showcasing the largest and most important collection of historic objects from early Los Angeles.
The exhibition will invite visitors on the journey of how Los Angeles — a small settlement in an arid landscape — became L.A., the global city of today.
