Also not something that can be done via the API, but botanical gardens 
will also tend to be fairly large locality outliers (large numbers of 
extremely tightly clustered points from relatively diverse taxa). Often, 
I've found, many gardens are all geo-referenced to a single reference 
locality, so you don't even need to do a bounding box filter, you can 
just filter out specific points.
