Sandy Drayer 2013 Facundo

Facundo and Sandy

The Sandy Drayer Environmental Scholarship was established in 2004 to honor Sandy Drayer for her 20+ years of service to the Lower Merion Conservancy and its predecessors, the Lower Merion Preservation Trust and the Lower Merion-Narberth Watershed Association. This year, the Conservancy utilized the Sandy Drayer Environmental Scholarship to provide two Harriton high school students, Julia Marks and Lauren Mendelsohn, with garden internship opportunities. They will be assisting with garden maintenance and providing a biological inventory of Rolling Hill Park’s Stormwater Demonstration Garden, the Betty Reeves Native Wildflower Garden, and the Sensory Garden in Wynnewood Valley Park. We are also excited to announce that we are also sponsoring our very own BirdWatch volunteer, Facundo Fernandez-Duque, to attend the 5th Annual Cornell Lab of Ornithology Young Birders Event. We are very excited to have these new faces at the Conservancy and look forward to sharing their work with you!
