Communications Director & Pollinator Project Manager

 

Even as a kid, one of Bri's greatest joys in life was sharing knowledge with other people, particularly about nature and its hidden secrets. As the Pollinator Project Manager and Communications Director for Keep Durham Beautiful, she gets to live her dream everyday by furthering the mission of KDB and helping others learn and get engaged with the environment around them. She has worked as an outdoor educator, volunteered and WWOOFed on multiple farms, worked as a research technician studying Lincoln Sparrows and Spadefoot toads, and gets really excited every time a seedling that she has planted starts to grow. Aside from her obsession with nature, Bri teaches yoga and cycle classes around Durham, loves being physically active, enjoys drawing and collaging, backpacking, cuddling her cat and dog, and traveling.

Environmental Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator and CTNCAmericorps Service Member

Dawn is an NC native with a passion for all things outdoors. In her role as Environmental Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator and CTNCAmericorps Service Member, she gets to do all the things she loves anyways--pick up litter, plant gardens, plan events, and nerd out about waste reduction and other environmental issues--while helping others do the same! When she's not wearing her waste warrior hat, Dawn is an active member of the cycling community and a board member of Oaks & Spokes, a small cycling advocacy non-profit in Raleigh, NC. She also fosters kittens through the Wake County Animal Center, and works part-time at a local Raleigh bakery and flour mill. In her free time, she enjoys reading, crafting, snuggling her two cats, and any reason to be outside with friends.
