Meet our Alberta Parks Ambassadors – Tyler D

Alberta Parks Ambassadors are united by a common passion for all things Alberta Parks and a desire to share their experiences. This spring, 130 people applied to take part in the Ambassador Program and from those applicants 13 were chosen to bring their adventures to life for everyone to enjoy and to inspire people to have their own Alberta Parks experience.

Through this 13 part blog series, we will introduce your Alberta Parks Ambassadors and share what they’ve been up to this summer.

Tyler D

Originally from Saskatchewan, but has called Calgary, Alberta home for almost a decade, Tyler is a high school teacher with the Calgary Board of Education.

Tyler volunteers with the GOT Parks initiative, which aims at reconnecting Canada’s youth with our national, provincial, and territorial parks, and with the Calgary Guardian, where he is the Outdoor Editor in charge of reporting everything that makes Calgary’s enormous backyard an adventurer’s dreamland.

Hiking, mountain biking, paddling, camping, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, as well as team sports, travelling, photography, spending time with good friends, and being at home with his wife and dog round out Tyler’s interests.
