Susana Cruz

Individual Award

Susana saw a disconnect in her community between her neighbors and nature. With her work with Chicana in Nature she sought to make a difference by starting a hiking group specifically for residents Dallas/Fort Worth and Latinos to create a safe and welcoming space for people who did not see themselves outdoors. She regularly leads outdoor experiences and engages with families not only at local Dallas/Fort Worth spots but also leads trips to introduce new spaces to the families she works with.
