Name the Gator!

Thanks to an ARP Non-Profit Vitality Grant from the Lower Merion Township, we have a new electric vehicle to be used on the trail for hauling water, plants, and other supplies. It is a John Deere Gator and it will allow us to take better care of all the wonderful things planted along the trail. 

Please join in the excitement by helping us to Name the Gator!

Happening Now: Natural Grass Meadow

Part of our mission is to support the ecological needs and natural habitats along the Trail. Thanks to our volunteers, the replanting of the meadow as a no-mow zone has been winter prepped and being readied for a spring growing season that we can all enjoy.

Landscape Improvements on the Trail

A National Fish and Wildlife Foundation grant from the Delaware Watershed Conservation Fund to the Lower Merion Conservancy will be used to improve the quality of the landscape along the trail. Plans include converting lawn to meadow and planting thousands of trees, shrubs, and other plants. 

You can view the plan as designed by landscape designer Bob Gray as well as follow the progress of the project in the Stewardship section of our website.
