If Alberta nominated a “Mr. Water,” there is a very good chance David Hill would be awarded this distinction. From his days working in the world of irrigation farming to his role at Alberta Innovates supporting water research across the province and now to his new role at the University of Lethbridge, David has been a champion for water education. David’s water expertise has been invaluable to Inside Education’s water education programming. If you ever have a chance to see his water pictures from around the world…do it!
