June 8, 2023

A new program from the Alouette River Management Society (ARMS) is offering local teens the chance to experience what it’s like to have a hands-on environmental career.

This initiative, titled Eco-Career Academy, connects students between the ages of 15 and 17 with professionals from a variety of ecological areas, explained ARMS communications and engagement manager Sophie Sparrow.

“The Alouette River Management Society is offering an amazing opportunity for high school students to test out five different environmental careers to see what path they would like to take in university,” said Sparrow.
