For those interested in helping the Garden Conservancy, the Los Angeles Conservancy, the California Preservation Foundation and the California Garden and Landscape Society brainstorm ways to keep the UCLA Hannah Carter Japanese Garden open to the public, there's a gathering Tuesday. Kendall Brown, an expert on Japanese gardens in America, will discuss the historical importance of the garden, which is scheduled to be put up for sale next month.

The gathering will be from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Community Magnet Charter School auditorium, 11301 Bellagio Road, Los Angeles. Carpooling is recommended because parking is limited. Reservations: Paulette DuBey of the Bel-Air Assn., (310) 474-3527; paulette@belaironline.org.
