Community, conservation and education serve each other well and it is with this background that Patti joins the Land Trust. A previous Blaine County School District science teacher, business owner and administrator and co-founder of The Mountain School, Patti’s connection to the Valley is long and diverse. She was elected supervisor with the Natural Resources Conservation District for seven years, and in 1997 founded the Wood River Watershed Advisory Group with the district biologists. As the mother of two, Patti is an avid Nordic skier and mountain biker and holds a B.S. in zoology.
