The Conservancy has been working to preserve Open Space in Lower Merion and Narberth since our formation in 1995 and prior to that as the Lower Merion and Narberth Watershed Association and as the Preservation Trust.
Our Preservation Victories are collaborative efforts with many homeowners local and regional partners as well as support from our members. Staff time put into our preservation efforts is 100% supported by membership dollars to make preservation more affordable to those creating more open space.
