Watershed Conservation

The Conservancy is dedicated to protecting the natural environment of Lower Merion. Through a variety of science initiatives and service projects, the Conservancy works with volunteers, local government, and school groups to continue its efforts to overcome the challenges that threaten the natural environment of Lower Merion.

The Conservancy operates a variety of science initiatives, the largest of which is StreamWatch. The StreamWatch program consists of volunteer monitoring, restoration projects, and other projects designed to identify and address the major problems facing Mill Creek and other streams in Lower Merion. The Conservancy also offers an Environmental House Call service, which provides the residents of Lower Merion and Narberth with technical advice on how to better manage stormwater on their properties.

We also have received a National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant and a William Penn grant to work on watershed monitoring and installing stormwater infrastructure in Narberth Borough.
