Lacawac is a special 545-acre wildlife sanctuary on the shore of Lake Wallenpaupack. Its rich woodland habitat boasts a diverse array of plants, animals, and birds and provides a wonderful refuge for local residents and visitors to commune with nature.
We partner with schools and civic organizations to provide hands-on learning experiences to grow next generation stewards. We strive to preserve our unique glacial lake, its watershed, surrounding forest and historic buildings. We conduct scientific research on key environmental issues like water quality and climate change and provide learning opportunities for future scientists from Kindergarten through graduate school.
