Better Living; Re-Zoning Lower Merion

Part 1: Open Space

Thursday, October 26th

Idlewild Farm Preserve Barn

Lower Merion has long invited admiration for its unique collection of open spaces. These spaces include landscapes associated with the township’s early agricultural period; large, groomed parcels that accommodated Lower Merion’s Gilded-Age estates, and wooded valleys that remain oases of peace in our densely populated suburb. On Thursday, October 26, join Natural Lands, Lower Merion Township, and the Lower Merion Conservancy to discuss strategies for preserving our community’s open spaces. Natural Lands will host the event at its Idlewild Farm, a Gladwyne open-space success story.

Wine and cheese reception at 6:30 with the forum beginning promptly at 7:00.
