The Alouette River Management Society is dedicated to proactively protecting and improving the Alouette Watershed and surrounding areas by creating a healthy environment connecting parks, trail systems, public centers and waterways.

Our goals for the future: We envision the Alouette Watershed as a resilient ecosystem rich in biodiversity, culture, and recreation that is protected, maintained and stewarded for years to come.

The Alouette River Management Society’s mission is to sustain and enhance the integrity of the Alouette Watershed through advocacy, education, collaboration, and stewardship using science-based decision-making.

 

How are we going to do that? With our three key priorities:

  • Develop new connections and deepen existing relationships affecting the Alouette River Watershed.
  • Develop and deliver exceptional education and outreach experiences to educate the public and community
  • Monitor, protect, enhance, and advocate for the health of the Alouette Watershed.

HOW WE SUPPORT PACIFIC SALMON IN THE ALOUETTE RIVER

Community Outreach

Our organization is deeply involved in the community of Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows. We make it a goal of ours to engage the community in educational events, talk about salmon conservation, restoration projects and our Adopt-A-Block program. We believe in collaborating with the community, individuals, businesses and other organizations to create effective change and support the Alouette River and all the species that depend on it.

Salmonoid Habitat Restoration

We have had the pleasure of restoring salmon habitat throughout the Alouette River and it’s off channels. By making channels along streams, supplying gravel and woody debris, we have created areas for salmon to reside over winter and spawn in. This has further allowed us to increase the number of salmon able to live in our river, and its tributaries within the City of Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge.

Classroom Programs

Our classroom programs have been created with the BC Teachers Learning Outcomes in mind and each program is relevant to our ecosystem here in the Fraser Valley. From teaching about the five pacific salmon species, our watershed, pollution, littering, to bees, bats, frogs and everything in between. We visit schools throughout the Lower Mainland teaching kids of all ages about the importance of the ecosystems and wildlife within our reach.
