“a great national landmark”

Lacawac Sanctuary is a nature preserve, ecological field research station and public environmental education facility located in the Pocono Mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania.  It was founded in 1966, via the donation of 341 acres (now totals 545 acres) and a group of historic buildings.  Lacawac Sanctuary Foundation Inc. is its full name and it is a non-profit  501 (c) (3) membership organization. The most notable feature of Lacawac Sanctuary is Lake Lacawac - a 52 acre lake that is one of the southernmost glacial lake in the hemisphere that has been preserved in pristine condition totally free from development or encroachment.  The property also features nature displays, a native plants garden, demonstration forest, deer exclosure plots, and six public hiking trails. In addition the property preserves a natural boreal bog, the Wallenpaupack Ledges Natural Area, Partner Ridge, and the Heron and Golden Ponds. Lake Lacawac was declared a National Natural Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 1966.  The 1903 historic “Adirondack Great Camp” building complex at its core has been named to the National Historic Register. In 2010, the Ledges and the lake with its wetlands were again recognized for their special qualities via declaration as an official Pennslyvania Wild Plant Sanctuary by the Pennsylvania DCNR.
