Meet the team that works at Ecology North.
Craig Scott, Executive Director
I moved to Yellowknife in 2002, and immediately got involved with Ecology North when an excited member nominated me to the Board (muttering something about fresh blood). Not knowing quite what I was getting into, I ended up loving the experience and spent 6 years on the Board, learning and volunteering time. This Board experience led to work as a contractor and I was hired to complete climate change adaptation plans for NWT communities. This turned into a short-term contract with EN and eventually, I parlayed all these EN experiences into a position at the helm of the organization as the Executive Director.
I completed an honours Environmental Studies degree at Waterloo University, with a business option. This degree led to a variety of experiences across the world, Canada and the North. Upon moving to Yellowknife, I worked in Environmental consulting with FSC Consulting, and with the GNWT as the Climate Change Specialist. These experiences allowed me to start CS Environmental and work independently as an environmental consultant. Highlights of this work include, authoring climate change adaptation plans for three NWT communities, developing Permafrost Guidebooks for Homeowners for NWT and Nunavut and doing a wide-variety of energy, and climate change projects. When not in the office, I can be found with my wife and three young girls, canoeing, fishing, kite-skiing, or playing hockey or Frisbee. In the Spring I can be found in the woods harvesting birch syrup, and collecting wild foods as part of my partnership in the wild food company Arctic Harvest.
Dawn Trembly, Compost Specialist
Dawn Tremblay was born in Fort Simpson and raised in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories. She completed a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Alberta in Political Science and French. After returning home, Dawn sought out northern focused educational opportunities. First, she completed a certificate in Circumpolar Studies online through the University of the Arctic. Next, she became involved with the Dechinta Bush University, where she enhanced her passion for land-base intergenerational learning. Professionally, Dawn has been part of the Ecology North team since 2010. She is excited to focus her time on the Yellowknife Centralized Compost Program, after acting in a supportive capacity for a number of years. Dawn is grateful to have gained experience in many different programming areas, most notably event planning and environmental education. From 2015-17, Dawn was a Jane Glassco Northern Fellow in the third cohort of the program. Her policy research area was waste management in the Northwest Territories with a focus on used-tires and organics recycling. She also can be seen around town volunteering for different sport organizations.
Dawn enjoys laughing with her son, and going for walks with her dog.
