Wolfe Society

Wolfe Society LOGO

Founded in 1975, The Lower Merion Narberth Watershed Association was created by the passionate Dr. Art Wolfe, a Lower Merion High School science teacher. Dr. Wolfe’s passion for preservation rallied students and residents to take action to protect the natural treasures of our community.  In 1995, the Watershed Association merged with the Lower Merion Preservation Trust and the Lower Merion Conservancy was formed.

Art’s legacy continues today with the Wolfe Society.

Wolfe Society members, whose annual membership gifts of $1,000 more maintain our work towards his vision of cleaner streams, protecting open space and keeping the historical character of our community.

 Wolfe Society members receive:

  • FREE admittance to all lectures, workshops and events (excluding the annual Gala), including our popular historic preservation lecture series, featuring wine and cheese receptions in interesting historic venues.
  • an invitation to our annual Friend’s hors d’oeuvre and cocktail reception, often held in private historic homes.
  • Special recognition in our Annual Report, mailed to 2,000 residents every November.
