Tara Caseley and Laurie have worked and volunteered together since 2006. In 2015, the dynamic duo became co-founders of SALMTEC to fulfill their shared vision of creating a way to provide relevant, practical, high quality and accessible training and education opportunities to the environmental management community: colleagues, students, experts looking to expand knowledge areas. Thus SALMTEC was formed - a framework based on collaboration that provides opportunities for subject matter experts, participants, land managers, and users in general.
