Just north of Highway 64, bordering Raleigh to the northeast, lies Durham County, North Carolina. The sixth-most populous county in North Carolina is home to over 300,000 residents and vibrant community within. The area is part of the Research Triangle Region of the state, which is known as a hub for technology and academia. Like many other communities across North Carolina and the country, Durham County is already experiencing the effects of climate change and is preparing for an uncertain climate future. We got a chance to speak with Tobin Freid, the Sustainability Manager of the county, to discuss how the Durham community is becoming more climate-resilient.
