Students from SD 42 get back tours at ALLCO fish hatchery

Tours start March 10 until June 10

Alouette River Management Society (ARMS) announced earlier this week that they will be restarting the fish hatchery school tours this March.

“We are excited to announce we are starting to running school Hatchery Tours again! Starting this week on March 10, we are offering school tours at the ALLCO Fish Hatchery on Thursdays and Fridays,” said Alex Holmes of ARMS.

These are 60-minute tours and are geared towards pacific salmon in the Alouette River, how they are connected to the landscape and releasing of fry into the river, depending on the availability, she said.

The society will have two tour types. The Small Fry tour will be for grades Pre-K to Grade 2. The Super Smolt Fry tour will be for Grades 3 to 7 adapted for the curriculum.

We are excited to be able to provide an opportunity for students to learn about the five species of salmon found in the Alouette Watershed and local ecosystems,” said Holmes.

The tours will run until June 10, 2022.
