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.

Built for Heavy Lifting

Red-tailed hawks are considered a generalist predator, preferring to hunt animals that are abundant and easily caught. Being perch-hunters, they are often seen scanning an area for prey from a conspicuous branch and can take animals as large as rabbits.  Red-tails also enjoy a good soar, as this one was above the GNG.
