    David Pattyson, Watershed Executive Director

    David was born, raised and continues to operate the family farm in the Tribune area. In addition to his farming activities he works as the Coordinator of the Upper Souris Watershed Association.


    He has also been quite active in the community serving in many volunteer and elected boards. He was a founding member of the Sunrise Community Futures Development Corporation, serving as their vice president for several years.


    He joined The Provincial Council of ADD boards as one of the original Environmental Farm Planning Facilitators in 2005, a role which he has enjoyed until recently. He also is a facilitator for the Pacific Institute's Leaders in Growth Workshops.


    Although quite driven in his working life, in his spare time David can be found in his garden, rebuilding a computer, hiking or simply spending time with his friends and family.
