Mission Statement

The mission of Lacawac Sanctuary is to preserve Lake Lacawac, its watershed, the surrounding forest and historic structures; provide a venue for ecological research, scholarly interaction and the training of scientists; provide public education on environmental and conservation issues; and conserve open space in Pennsylvania.

Description

The Lacawac Sanctuary is a nature preserve located in the Pocono Mountains in northeast Pennsylvania. Founded in 1966, by Arthur and Isabel Watres, with the donation of 341 acres and several historic buildings, circa 1903, Lacawac Sanctuary has grown to encompass 510 acres, including a mature second-growth forest, a glacial lake, two ponds, several wetlands and over one mile of shoreline on Lake Wallenpaupack.
Lacawac is managed by a volunteer board and limited staff with assistance from a strong base of volunteers. It operates through donations, grants and memberships.
