The Alliance for Aquatic Resource Monitoring (ALLARM) is an aquatic community science center at Dickinson College. Since its founding in 1986, ALLARM has become a nationally recognized technical and programmatic support center for community organizations interested in watershed assessment, protection, and restoration.  Through the work of four full time professional staff, 10-16 Dickinson College part-time students, and a part time science advisor, ALLARM has carried out its mission to empower Pennsylvania and New York communities with scientific tools to assess stream health and help communities use those data to implement stream restoration and protection measures.
