Fall Walks in Webster Woods

To help Newton residents learn more about this natural treasure, we are sponsoring walks in Webster Woods in October and November.

Mayor Ruthanne Fuller has proposed that the City acquire 17.4 acres of Webster Woods that are now owned by Boston College.  A public hearing on the proposal will be held on November 6th.  Newton Conservators strongly supports this proposal.

The remaining walks:

Autumn Comes to Webster Woods

October 26, 1pm

Boston University biology professor Richard Primack will tell us about autumn in New England: learn why leaves change color and drop off in October, and how climate change is altering the season.


Webster Woods Trail System

November 2, 1pm

This walk will be led by Dan Brody, who is a member of the Newton Community Preservation Committee and a Newton Conservators director.  It will explore the trail system in the portion of Webster Woods now owned by Boston College, and in the adjacent conservation land owned by the City of Newton and by the state Department of Conservation and Recreation.
