Bradley Peter, Executive Director

Bradley is the Executive Director of the Alberta Lake Management Society. Bradley completed a B.Sc. in Ecology in 2010 at the University of Alberta with a special interest in freshwater biology. Bradley has spent 12 years working on lakes and community based monitoring programs with a goal of improving our understanding and the management of lakes, reservoirs, and their watersheds. In his “spare” time Bradley loves to go bowling with friends.

Caleb Sinn, Program Manager

Caleb’s passion for freshwater ecology developed after spending many summers throughout his childhood at Gull Lake, exploring Alberta’s mountain national parks, and fishing in southern British Columbia. He graduated from the University of Alberta in 2019 with a B.Sc. double-major in Biology and Chemistry, and focused his studies specifically on community and freshwater ecology, environmental chemistry, and analytical chemistry. He also spent two years working on freshwater ecology projects ranging from mountain lake sampling to cyanobacteria monitoring and algal pigment analysis at the University of Alberta. Caleb was a LakeWatch technician in the summer of 2019, and looks forward to coordinating lake monitoring projects and public outreach across Alberta as the ALMS Program Manager.

Kurstyn Cappis, Program Coordinator

Kurstyn’s love for lakes began as a child, spending many summers at her family cabin at Pigeon Lake. She graduated from the University of Alberta in 2015 with a B.Sc. in Environmental and Conservation Sciences, with a major in Conservation Biology. In winter 2022, she joined ALMS to support its winter programs and then became a LakeWatch Technician in summer 2022, and learned lots about freshwater and invasive species monitoring. You will find her in a new role as the Program Coordinator, leading our new water quality program for Indigenous Community Based Monitoring in the Oil Sands regions. She is looking forward to continuing her work in aquatic ecosystem management and connecting with new communities across Alberta.

Kirsten Letendre, Program Technician

Kirsten’s passion for lakes started as a young girl spending her winters on McLeod Lake, ice fishing, and her summers on Pigeon Lake, camping, fishing and doing water sports. Her childhood passions continued into adulthood, and you can typically find Kirsten outside, near some body of water. She graduated from Grant MacEwan University in 2022 with a B.Sc., majoring in Biological Sciences. She has spent time working in a biology lab, working with orphaned and injured wildlife, and working on a fish monitoring study, looking at the health of fish in lakes across Alberta. Kirsten is looking forward to going out to various lakes in Alberta this winter for water monitoring and learning more about Alberta’s amazing aquatic ecosystems.
