Lori Kerrigan, is currently the Head Resource Conservationist, and supervisor of the permitting/technical section at Monroe County Conservation District. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Sustainable Watershed Management and an Associates in Forest Technology.

Lori is also a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC), and became a certified Level 3 Rosgen “crony” in Applied River Morphology, Application, Assessment and Monitoring while working with the Conservation Districts and DEP in the Catskill Mountains in NY in the early 2000’s.

Over the last 24 years in the conservation arena, she has worked with a wide-range of environmental partners on projects to help foster stewardship of our natural resources. During this time, Lori had the opportunity to design, construct and provide oversight of environmental and natural resource projects. Her efforts included Fluvial Geomorphic Stream Assessment, Fish Passage Culvert Improvement, Wetland and Riparian Assessment and restoration, Stormwater Improvement projects, habitat enhancement and water quality projects.

Recently, Lori has facilitated the development of a partnership with the PA Game Commission and DEP. Through this partnership, MCCD obtained a two-part Growing Greener Grant, to improve water quality, restore the natural stream functions, minimize bank erosion and restore habitat in a headwater reach of Sand Spring Run in the Upper Pocono watershed. The project came about to address an historic stone box culvert failure, below the 75-foot high impoundment that supported the Wilkes Barre and Eastern (WB&E) Railroad crossing.

When completed, the “Sand Spring Run Streambank Restoration Project” will provide a significant reduction in sediment loading, to the Pocono and Brodhead Creek Watersheds, restored riparian buffer and enhancement of both instream and riparian habitat.
