Lehigh River Watershed Conservation Management Plan
After years of work, Wildlands Conservancy is pleased to announce
the completion of the Lehigh River Watershed Conservation Management
Plan. The purpose of the plan is to: identify the cultural, natural,
biological, historical, and recreational resources of the watershed;
identify problems; seek solutions; and list recommendations for
the preservation, protection, and enhancement of the Lehigh River
and its watershed. With the completion of the plan, Wildlands Conservancy
will petition the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural
Resources to have the Lehigh River watershed placed on the Pennsylvania
Rivers Registry, making the watershed eligible for improvement dollars
from the state.
The State of the Lehigh River Report is the executive summary of the Lehigh River Watershed Conservation Management Plan.
