Welcome to the Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM)! ALLARM is an environmental organization based out of Dickinson College that empowers local communities with scientific tools to assess, protect, and restore waterways. Since 1986, ALLARM has provided technical assistance to volunteer stream monitors in the state of Pennsylvania. In the form of grass roots, skill building training workshops implemented in municipal buildings and community centers throughout Pennsylvania, ALLARM has built the scientific capacity of community watershed associations to address water quality questions and implement monitoring studies.
The ALLARM staff includes two full time directors, a part time faculty director, and 12-14 Dickinson College students. Central to ALLARM’s mission is not only build the capacity of watershed organizations but to also build the capacity of its student watershed coordinators to develop the essential professional skills to work in a non-profit office, convert classroom-based knowledge into practice, and to contribute to demonstrable positive environmental change.
