Guided Walks – Upcoming

A Conservators tour spots a yellow warbler

Each Spring and Fall, the Newton Conservators organizes a series of walks to local open space areas. These walks are led by knowledgeable leaders and are open to the public. They normally last for an hour or two. Some events are for bicycle or canoe. These walks are a great way to get to know open space areas in Newton.

Please note that walks meet at different times. Some trips are weather-dependent. Contact the trip leader if in doubt.

Other upcoming events, including sessions to remove invasive plants, are listed on this page.
