2023 Annual Conference

2023 Annual Conference
September 12-13
Camp Kannawin at Sylvan Lake

Each year the Alberta Lake Management Society (ALMS) hosts a two-day workshop to engage stakeholders on issues related to lake monitoring and management. In 2023, ALMS brought the annual conference to Sylvan Lake, Alberta! This event also featured topics specific to the Red Deer Watershed in support of the Red Deer River Watershed Alliance’s Fall Forum!
