Full Time Permanent
Alouette River Management Society (ARMS)
Based just outside the vast and picturesque Golden Ears Park in Maple Ridge, the Alouette River Management Society (ARMS) has been working hard to sustain and enhance the integrity of the Alouette Watershed. ARMS was one of the key drivers in advocating for increased river flows for all five species of Pacific salmon and other aquatic species. ARMS became the first group in British Columbia to obtain a Water Use Plan and successfully increased water flows in the South Alouette River. Our office and interpretive centre is located on the ancestral, unceded territories of the Katzie First Nation and Kwantlen First Nation. Our work takes us into local parks, classrooms, and riverside. We work with many amazing people and other like-minded community and environmental groups.
