Who’s Behind Southeast Ecology?

Southeast Ecology is owned and operated by me, Dr. Norman Leonard, a conservation biologist and environmental educator whose very most favorite thing ever is talking with other people about nature. I’m trained in ecology (BS in Ecology from UGA) and conservation biology (Ph.D. in Conservation Biology from UNO), I’m an avocational organic gardener, a fitness enthusiasts, and an avid reader. I also dabble in photography and guitar. I started Southeast Ecology in 2012 while I was a college instructor at UNG and doing talks for groups as a side gig.
