Presentation: “Fall 2021 Park Update”
Sal began his career at Parks Canada in 2001 as a Conservation Biologist for the Mountain Parks. Since then, he has taken on many assignment opportunities, the most recent assignment before WLNP was as the Associate Director in the Natural Resources Conservation Branch in Ottawa. Prior to that he was Resource Conservation Manager in Jasper as well as the Field Unit Superintendent in Jasper. Sal has considerable time at Parks Canada overseeing aspects of the national fire program for Parks Canada as well. Sal has acted as the Field Unit Superintendent in Waterton twice before coming on as the Superintendent in November of 2018 so is relatively familiar with the operations and situational landscape in Waterton. Sal was excited to be back in Waterton where he had his first graduate program field site in 1991. Prior to working for Parks Canada, Sal worked for eight years for both the Alberta and BC provincial governments in a project management capacity.
Sal holds a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of Calgary.
