Each year ALMS hires field technicians to conduct LakeWatch’s water quality monitoring. Field technicians have a technical diploma or degree in environmental sciences or a related field, and receive a month of training with ALMS and Environment and Parks Environmental Monitoring and Science Division.
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.
