Land We Protect

The Conservators works to protect land primarily through advocacy of the purchase of threatened open space by the City of Newton.  But we also have legal responsibility for the protection of two categories of land:  property that has been donated to us, and property on which we hold a conservation restriction.

Ordway Park was bequeathed to The Conservators by Priscilla Ordway in 1971

Land We Own

The Conservators owns three parcels that were donated to us by conservationists who wanted to ensure that their land would be preserved.

Conservation Restrictions

The Conservators holds a legal conservation restriction on several parcels of land throughout the city.
