Lehigh River Headwaters Tour

Protected Place is Significant to the Health of the Lehigh River

Lehigh River Headwaters Tour

On May 28, 2015, friends, partners and supporters gathered for a special tour of the headwaters of the Lehigh River, a 4,000-acre property protected through the land-trust work of Wildands Conservancy. Today, the   parcel is permanently set aside as part of PA State Game Lands #312.

Key to the quantity and quality of the water of the Lehigh River, the parcel contains woodland, wetland and riparian habitat, including pitcher and sun dew plants, special carnivorous species.
