BEC names new director

Farmers’ market manager will lead environmental group

The Butte Environmental Council will have a new executive director at the beginning of next month, the organization’s board of directors announced via press release earlier this week.

Natalie Carter (pictured) will take the reins of the nonprofit environmental watchdog group on March 1. The position has been occupied by Robyn DiFalco since 2012.

Carter’s move to BEC follows a four-year stint at the Chico Certified Farmers’ Market, where she began as a market assistant and most recently served as general manager. She currently sits on the Chico Natural Foods Cooperative’s board of directors, and formerly served as treasurer of the Honey Run Covered Bridge Association.

“Carter joins a dynamic and devoted staff at BEC who are confident that by working together they can carry on BEC’s legacy within the community,” the release reads.
