The Gottlieb Native Garden Foundation

Donate Now

Susan Gottlieb is pleased to announce the formation of The Gottlieb Native Garden Foundation, a tribute to the enduring legacy of Dan Gottlieb, who passed away in January of 2024.

This Foundation is a testament to Dan’s profound appreciation for the geology and natural history of California, and Susan’s deep affinity for its diverse plant and animal life. Their shared passion is why they created the Gottlieb Native Garden in 1990.

Dan used to joke that all the other women he dated wanted to tear up his little black book. Susan wanted to tear out the ivy in his yard and replace with native plants.

The esteemed sanctuary they created together has been awarded the designation of National Wildlife certified backyard habitat. It is celebrated nationwide and holds a place of honor within the Los Angeles environmental community. It embodies Dan and Susan’s shared conviction that the salvation of our world lies in a greater understanding of native plants, the foundation of biodiversity and the pulse of robust ecosystems. The Foundation seeks to foster education, research, and preservation of native plants, ensuring that the garden’s roots continue to deepen, spreading the message of ecological harmony for generations to come.
