Dale Threatt-Taylor is the Executive Director of The Nature Conservancy South Carolina Chapter (TNC SC). She received a Bachelor of Science in Conservation from North Carolina State University and a Master of Environmental Management from Duke University in 2011. In 2012, she was selected as one of 30 agriculturalists in North Carolina identified to participate in the Agricultural Leadership Development Program at North Carolina State University.
Her career began as a soil conservationist with the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. She later joined the Wake Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) as a conservation technician and progressively moved into one of the natural resource conservationist positions. In 2008 she was selected as district director of Wake SWCD and Wake County Soil and Water Conservation Department. Her new role as Executive Director for TNC SC has provided the opportunity to build new relationships between soil conservationists and environmentalists across the nation.
Dale’s vision for a successful Society includes active communication, professional board service, and productive membership. She wants everyone to understand that locally led conservation begins with an individual, and that all of our conservation work matters in protecting the land and water on which all life depends.
