The Gottlieb Native Garden

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.

Like wildflowers, you must allow yourself to grow in all the places
people never thought you would.



Susan and Dan Gottlieb

Susan and Dan Gottlieb are devoted environmental philanthropists and respected photographers who own the popular G2 Gallery on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in the Venice neighborhood of Los Angeles. Susan, in addition to pursuing her passions for native gardening and conservation photography, serves on the President’s Advisory Council for National Wildlife Federation and the Board of Directors for both Audubon California and Friends of Ballona Wetlands. She works closely with the Theodore Payne Foundation, UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, and other environmental  organizations.

Los Angeles has not always been regarded as a hotspot of environmentalism, but the Gottliebs’ contributions have helped L.A. conservationists coalesce into a strong and powerful community.


The G2 Gallery

The G2 Gallery has exhibited the work of dozens of environmental photographers, from emerging artists such as Jennifer MaHarry and Michael Miner to well-known stalwarts: Clyde Butcher, Robert Glenn Ketchum, Thomas D. Mangelsen, Art Wolfe, and the late Ansel Adams, among others.  

The G2 Gallery donates all proceeds from art sales to environmental charities. Since its opening in March 2008, G2’s contributions have exceed $1,200,000.
