Environmental Safety


The Moosic Lakes Club (MLC) was established in 1942 as a non-profit organization that acquires, holds and maintains the real estate, roads, and lake rights for the purpose of the private community.  Under the leadership of an active Board we are charged with protecting and preserving these lands and waterways.

In protecting our lands and waters we must require all members to know and understand the importance of protecting and maintaining the indigenous plants and wildlife within our community on club owned property as well as your own.

Lakes, Roads and Commons

The Moosic Lakes Club oversees two of the most pristine Lakes in Pennsylvania and has done so for over 74 years.  The Officers and Directors of the Moosic Lakes Club extend bids and award work to various contractors and suppliers who understand the need for special care when working in and around our lakes.  This message should be conveyed to any contractor doing work in our community.

Contractor or Landscaper Equipment

It is imperative that all equipment used within our community be thoroughly clean and free of any foreign vegetation.  All vehicles shall be inspected (by the contractor) for fluid leaks prior to entering club property.  Any vehicles left on club property must be approved by the MLC Board. No work shall be done on club owned property without prior authorization.

Fill and Planting Materials

DO NOT use fill of any kind which has not been thoroughly screened and free from invasive plants, seeds or roots.  Any work which results in the introduction of non-indigenous and/or invasive species shall be remedied at the expense of the contractor or parties executing the work.

It is expected all plantings will be indigenous of Northeast Pennsylvania and any removal of club owned vegetation will be restored to its original state using similar plants and/or trees.  Plants and Trees will be of the approximate size and caliper of those removed. The Moosic Lakes Club maintains a list of recommended indigenous vegetation.
