Since 1987, the LRCA has been working towards a revitalized river, bound by parks, with clean water and safe public access.
Our mission is to involve citizens of the Lackawanna River Watershed with conservation and stewardship of the River, its tributaries, and water resources. Our goals are to clean up and conserve the River environment, aid in the development of the 40-mile Lackawanna River Heritage Trail, create stakeholder partnerships, and promote environmental education, conservation studies, and research. Our organization is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, which means your donations to us are tax deductible!
Your support for our non profit also aids the work of our environmental affiliate, the Lackawanna Valley Conservancy (LVC). To preserve natural areas in the watershed, the LVC works with property owners, municipalities, and other agencies to acquire properties through conservation easements. The LRCA and LVC work together to help preserve over 100,000 acres of natural and scenic watershed lands across the region.

May 16 at Misty Ridge Preserve
in Old Forge
June 13 along the Providence Reach
in North Scranton
All three of these sites are Preserves owned and maintained by the LRCA's affiliate, the Lackawanna Valley Conservancy (LVC).
