September 27: Leslie Abram “Secret lives of small creatures in your garden”

Leslie is a naturalist, environmental advocate, teacher, and photographer leslieabramwho lives north of Brighton, Ontario. Leslie’s goal with her photography is to ignite people’s curiosity about the amazing living things that share our earth. Ultimately, she hopes to encourage people to get outside, look closely, and reconnect with nature. She has had a keen curiosity about the natural world since she was young- and still wants to learn everything about each little creature she finds. She has built an extensive wildlife
garden on her property to encourage critters to come to her. Leslie shares her discoveries about the natural world in her blog entitled “Wildlife of Eastern Ontario” found at Here, she uses photos and stories to teach about everything from predatory insects, to owl pellets, to butterfly gardens. She also serves as a regular guest blogger for Nature Canada.

Leslie won the Canadian Wildlife Federation Reflections of Nature Photo Contest in the “flora” category for one of her water drop flower photos. Her photo was one of 10 featured at Canadian Wildlife Federation’s “Wild Art” Exhibitions in Vancouver and Ottawa.

“Look closely. You never know what you might find.”
