Volunteer of the Year Award:
In 2016 we had over 570 volunteer hours dedicated to LakeWatch! We would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all of our 2016 LakeWatch Volunteers! We had a great year monitoring lakes as well as hosting education and awareness events across the province – we couldn’t have done it without you.
Each year ALMS selects a volunteer to receive our Volunteer of the Year Award. These volunteers are individuals who have shown outstanding dedication and enthusiasm through the LakeWatch program. Click on the recipients below to learn more about the volunteers and their lakes – this could be you!
