From 2004 until 2009 the Land Management Committee of the Newton Conservators conducted weekly surveys of the wildlife - plants (mostly vascular), birds, obvious insects, mammals - in the parks and conservation areas of the City of Newton MA.


Don Lubin participated in many of these trips and recorded the pteridophyte flora.


The entire survey, plotted as taxon vs. location, may be found at
