Mission Statement
The Lehigh River Stocking Association is a nonprofit, 501C-3 public organization dedicated to the restoration, revitalization and restocking of the Lehigh River. Our goal is the continuous improvement of this waterway and its tributaries. Our objectives are to insure clean water, a healthy and balanced ecosystem, an abundant fishery and access points for all citizens to enjoy. This will be to the benefit of all interests; including the businesses located throughout this region, the sportsmen and the people of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. This project has been ongoing for the last thirteen years with ever-increasing success. We need and ask for your support for this outstanding program to continue.

MEETING SCHEDULE - The LRSA meets at 7pm on the last Tuesday of each month (except December) at the Wegmans Market Cafe on 3900 West Tilghman Street in Allentown.
