Since we keep it simple, we keep it affordable. Send us a free Estimate Request to get started.

Our Philosophy

At Streamscape Environmental we understand that many small environmental organizations don’t have access to affordable GIS mapping services. In this technological age, it is often vital to display your geographic and environmental data in reports and presentations, yet not everyone has the skills, time, or software to create professional quality maps. Large GIS consulting firms offer expensive and often overly-complicated options. While a less expensive option, interns and volunteers are typically just learning the programs, meaning slower progress and less professional results. In contrast, Streamscape Environmental provides quick, professional, and affordable results to meet your needs and fit your budget and timeline.

Salvador Contreras – Biologist/GIS Specialist

Salvador Contreras joined Streamscape Environmental in 2017, after leaving his position with Mexico’s Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP), where he worked as Program Manager in the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve of Guanajuato for more than eight years. Prior to CONANP, Salvador worked as an environmental consultant conducting environmental impact assessments for development projects in central Mexico. He completed his undergraduate degree in Biology from the Autonomous University of Queretaro (UAQ), Mexico, in 2004, and he has completed two postgraduate certificates in watershed management and local development.

He is a skilled photographer, and he has extensive experience utilizing camera traps to study wildlife communities in extremely remote locations. Outside of his work with Streamscape Environmental, Salvador is involved in two entomological research projects with Rosi Dagit at RCDSMM, studying the spread of the Polyphagous/Kuroshio Shot Hole Borers in the Santa Monica Mountains and studying drought effects on benthic macroinvertebrate communities in Topanga Creek.
