Lackawanna River 2020 PA River of the Year Winner!

DCNR announced on Wednesday, 01/29/2020, that the Lackawanna River is PA River of the Year for 2020! 

The LRCA Mission

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 defining our non profit 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.

The Lackawanna Valley Conservancy (LVC)

 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.
