We’re growing, and want you to join us!
The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are a community-based environmental stewardship non-profit working in the East Kootenay region of BC. The Ambassadors have a vision of an ecologically healthy Lake Windermere with balanced management approaches that support recreation and traditional uses, high fish and wildlife values, and economic prosperity in the region.
A Board of Directors representing a diversity of stakeholders in the Lake Windermere watershed guides the organization. The Lake Windermere Ambassadors are currently leading water monitoring on Lake Windermere and conducting water-related education and stewardship programs. We also encourage the implementation of policies & guidelines in the Lake Windermere Management Plan in our appointed role as Lake Management Committee. The Ambassadors have received accolades for their collaborative initiatives and are being used as a model for community-based water stewardship by Living Lakes International, Living Lakes Canada, and Friends of Kootenay Lake.
The Assistant position provides an exciting opportunity to help foster community-based water stewardship work through grassroots initiatives aimed at watershed monitoring, planning, and community engagement. Reporting to the Program Coordinator, the Assistant is responsible for supporting all aspects of the program, including water quality and quantity monitoring, public outreach and education, restoration and maintenance, and program administration.
