WNPS Salal Chapter Program:

The Gottlieb Native Garden: An Intimate Wildlife Journey

Scott Logan, Naturalist, Gottlieb Native Garden, CA

Scott reveals the astonishing range of biodiversity that’s capable of thriving in our backyards when the right plants and habitat are established. As the garden’s naturalist, Scott has identified nearly 500 species of animals in the Gottlieb Native Garden – from tiny insects to some of L.A.’s largest mammals. In his talk, Scott uses spectacular photographs to accompany his wonderfully engaging stories. He’s been a featured speaker at the Annenberg Space for Photography, Autry Museum of the American West, Los Angeles Zoo and Botanical Gardens as well as at many garden clubs and environmental organizations.
