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.
