Mayor Fuller Proposes Action to Save Webster Woods

October 7 update:  Mayor Fuller Files Proposal to Preserve Webster Woods

On September 18, 2019, Mayor Ruthanne Fuller proposed that the City take action to permanently preserve the 17 acres of Webster Woods purchased by Boston College in 2016:

“Preserving the largest contiguous forest for Newton in perpetuity is essential. We must protect this diverse eco-system and the habitat it provides for birds, mammals, amphibians and insects. We must ensure our residents have access to the woods, rocky ledges and the vernal pool on these 17+ acres and can connect to the 88+ acres of forest to either side cared for by the City of Newton and Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.”
