Conserving and Protecting

Identifying, conserving, and protecting the
Lake Erie region's unique natural and cultural resources 


LERC is a non-profit land trust that

promotes cooperation between landowners, government agencies, educational

institutions, the private sector and volunteers in an effort to protect and manage the

Lake Erie region's natural resources.  

Our focus area is Pennsylvania’s Lake Erie watershed.


LERC strives to identify and carry out

projects that promote land conservation, access to nature-based recreation, property stewardship, environmental education and sustainable development.  

Through the identification and implementation of various land conservation techniques LERC is able to preserve the ecological integrity of the Lake Erie region while meeting the needs of conservation oriented landowners.
