The Gottlieb Native Garden

a california love story

The Gottlieb Native Garden is a flourishing ecosystem belonging to Susan and Dan Gottlieb, friends of flora and fauna and devoted environmental philanthropists. With more than 100 hand-selected plant species and hundreds of animal species, the backyard is a National Wildlife Federation-certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat and a Xerces Society-designated Pollinator Habitat.

Great Horned Owl

For the last couple of months, adult Great Horned Owls have been seen regularly in the garden and we were convinced that a nest was in the area.  Although the nest site was never found, three fledglings were recently observed begging for food.  Here mom, still damp from the morning mist, roosts in the GNG with her fledglings near-by.
