The purpose of the Society is to promote understanding and comprehensive management of lakes and reservoirs and their watersheds. We work to build understanding and awareness among Albertans for responsible management of lakes, reservoirs and watersheds through programs and information sharing. Our programs strive to increase awareness of water resources through the local monitoring of Alberta’s surface waters and to foster a sense of stewardship in Alberta’s watersheds. ALMS and its members are active across Alberta in providing support to individuals, local communities, educational institutions, governments, and industry that are interested in lake and watershed management. The Society organizes an annual workshop at a different Alberta lake community each fall. The workshop provides a forum to discuss water quality issues, technical aspects of lake and watershed management, and practical solutions to local problems. ALMS members receive our quarterly newsletter, The New Wave. ALMS is also widely recognized through its two community-based lake water quality sampling programs called LakeWatch and Alberta Water Quality Awareness Day (AWQA Day).
In 1970, six natural history clubs joined together to form the Federation of Alberta Naturalists. Today, this same organization, known as Nature Alberta serves a membership of over 40 clubs and represents thousands of individuals across the province. Every one of these individuals share a passion for natural history.
