Who makes up Keep Durham Beautiful?

She loves meeting with and working with members from around the Durham community to help further the mission of KDB while always bringing joy and transformation to neighborhoods, schools, and other community organizations.
Environmental Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator
Dawn is an NC native with a passion for all things outdoors. In her role as Environmental Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator, 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 Boulted Bread, a Raleigh bakery and flour mill. In her free time, she enjoys reading, crafting, snuggling her three cats, and any reason to be outside with friends.
AmeriCorps Environmental Outreach and Volunteer Coordinator
Claire is originally from Virginia, but has lived in Durham for the past four years after graduating from High Point University. This is her second service term with AmeriCorps, having completed a year with AmeriCorps NCCC in the Southwest region of the US. Claire is excited to be serving with Keep Durham Beautiful because she gets to do many of the things that she enjoys: interacting with locals, educating, participating in community greening, and be an advocate for environmental friendly lifestyles. When not in the office, Claire likes to read, have movie marathons, hike, and cuddle her three Siamese cats.
