The Newton Conservators is a volunteer organization.  We need your help!  Please consider volunteering in one of the following roles:

Ongoing Roles

Membership Coordinator to manage our membership database and help find ways to expand our membership.

Website Editor to assist the Website Manager in running this website.

Board of Directors member to manage the organization.  We are especially eager to add directors who reflect the diversity of Newton’s population.

Link Rot Defender to help the Website Manager keep the 10,000 (!) links on our site from decaying over time.

Assignment Photographer to take pictures of new park features, during guided walks, or at other events.

Limited-time Projects

We’ve begun work on a major overhaul of our Trail Guide.  We have an Editor and a Map Creator, but we need to fill two more roles to complete the job:  a Project Director and a Designer.

Each spring and fall we sponsor a series of work days to remove invasive plants from parks and conservation areas. The invasive pulls are publicized on the events page of this website and in our printed Newsletter.  Please consider signing up for one or more events.

If you’re interested in learning more about any of these roles, please send an email to the President.
