Mila was born and raised in Calgary and has spent her summers working in parks all across Alberta. She nerds out when talking about Alberta wildlife and ecosystems, and her happy place is on a ridge in the backcountry with a good pair of binoculars. Mila studied Environment & Sustainability Geography at UBC Vancouver. Mila loves to teach, learn and share her enthusiasm for energy and natural resources, and is so happy to work alongside such a knowledgeable, positive and inspirational group of Educators at Inside Education!

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!
