Just let them know when your group would like to come, some slots are still available in May, or they can do any future month with advanced notice.  They'll need to know how many are in your group and a few days and times that might work. They will find a time when the docents can give your groupe a great tour of the beautiful UCLA Mathias Botanical Garden.  Be sure to let them know if you wish to combine the tour with lunch or an afternoon break on the patio, which they can reserve for you!
