Honesdale, PA – Jim Donnelly, President and Chief Executive Officer of Wayne Bank, is pleased to announce that Wayne Bank will once again support Lacawac Sanctuary with a Corporate Sponsorship of $1,000.00.

Lacawac Sanctuary Field Station and Environmental Education Center is an independent, non-profit, environmental education organization located on the shore of Lake Wallenpaupack in the Northern Poconos. The historic sanctuary is dedicated to inspiring lifelong connections to nature and shaping the next generation of scientists and earth stewards through research, education, and preservation.

According to Mr. Donnelly, “We are so happy to continue our sponsorship of the sanctuary for 2024. This partnership allows us to help preserve the beauty of this natural habitat within our community and ensure the continuation of Lacawac’s beneficial programs and environmental education.”

To fulfill its mission of Research, Education and Preservation, Lacawac offers environmental education and programs to the community, by communicating the core values of environmental responsibility, citizenship, inclusiveness, and the pursuit of knowledge. Lacawac works with an association of colleges and universities to provide research partnerships and a pristine location for undergrad and graduate students.

Visitors to the 550-acre nature preserve can enjoy a rich outdoor education and exposure to a blend of diverse habitats including wetlands, open fields, forests, and lakes. Additionally, the sanctuary provides nine miles of hiking trails open to the public, free of charge, from dawn to dusk year-round.

Memberships are also a critical part of Lacawac Sanctuary’s success in bringing science and nature programming to people of all ages.  As a member-supported organization, Lacawac Sanctuary Environmental Education Center relies solely on grants and private donations to help deliver year-round environmental education to the whole community.
