Join the Newton Conservators for walks and/or invasive plant pulls in Newton’s parks and conservation areas. All walks and invasive pulls last about an hour or two, are free and open to the public, and are led by knowledgeable leaders. Invasive plant pulls are a great way to get involved with community service and give back to your community. For more detailed information about the walks and invasive pulls, visit www.newtonconservators.org/walks.htm.
