Description

The Newton Conservators protects open space and enhances the community’s enjoyment of Newton’s natural places in a variety of ways.

We encourage the proper use and protection of parks, playgrounds, conservation areas, lakes, ponds, and streams for recreation, education, and scientific study.

We protect land through direct ownership and the enforcement of conservation restrictions.
