Lehigh Gap Nature Center (LGNC) is a member- supported nonprofit environmental education center and wildlife refuge located near Slatington, Pennsylvania. Our mission is to protect the wildlife and enhance the habitats of our Refuge, the neighboring Kittatinny Ridge, and the Lehigh River Watershed through conservation, education, research, and outdoor recreation to improve the quality of life of present and future generations. Through our efforts to revegetate a once barren and lifeless section of the Kittatinny Ridge, LGNC established the only environmental education center in the U.S. on a Superfund site. An outdoor classroom, environmental laboratory, and recreational hotspot, LGNC’s 756-acre refuge annually hosts tens of thousands of local, regional, and international visitors.
