In the Spring of 2001, the Newton Conservators instituted a twice-yearly lecture series featuring experts in areas related to the open space mission of the Conservators. Peter Alden, well known naturalist and author, was the inaugural speaker on March 21, 2001.
Lectures are co-sponsored with the Newton Free Libary and normally will take place in the Druker Auditorium of the Newton Free Library (330 Homer Street). Thanks to the Newton Free Library for its cosponsorship of our lecture series.
