LRCA's mission is to involve citizens of our watershed with conservation and stewardship of the River, its tributaries and water resources.

Five goals define our mission:

1.  Clean up the River environment;
2.  Aid in the development of the 40-mile Lackawanna River Heritage Trail;
3.  Create partnerships among government, businesses and community groups promoting conservation and recreation;
4.  Develop partnerships with schools, universities, and the general public to promote environmental and conservation education to better understand our relationship with the local environment;
5.  Advocate for the conservation of open space and natural habitat throughout the watershed.
