Keli Kuykendall is passionate about the planet. An ecologist by training, she is excited by possibilities to conserve intact ecosystems so future generations may better understand them. “As long as we’ve been studying, we can’t even begin to understand all the things the system can do for us,” she muses. “We can talk a little bit about the filtration of the water and the recycling of nutrients in riparian areas, but there are so many more things that we haven’t discovered yet. I’m very excited that we’re keeping ecosystems intact for future generations so that other people get a chance to experience it.”
