Cydney has always had a naturalist spirit, with her earliest memories hiking, camping, and gardening with her family. Her endless curiosity for wildlife, stewardship for the earth, and professional background in fine arts has led her to merge these passions to inspire others to get outdoors.
Alix Daniel is a Native Landscape Specialist at the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center in Kansas City. In her position she combines her decade of landscaping experience with her love of nature. Her favorite flower (this year) is closed bottle gentian.
