Torin Dunnavant, Director of Engagement & Partnerships
Hailing from the City of Trees (Sacramento), Torin Dunnavant brings a lifelong love of nature to his work connecting TreePeople to communities throughout Los Angeles. As a whitewater enthusiast, Torin came to TreePeople after working with Friends of the River in Northern California. He strongly believes in the power of a connected community and that TreePeople’s goal to bring people together to create sustainability is the key to making a better Los Angeles. He oversees TreePeople’s outreach program, frequently gives presentations, and strategizes on how to grow the organization’s community programs throughout the Los Angeles region.
Torin’s favorite nature book is A Tramp Across the Continentby Charles Fletcher Lummis. He is inspired by Theodore Roosevelt, who he describes as a burly dude with an endless supply of energy and a focus on fairness.
