  • Conservation Commission Offering Invasive Plant ID

    Members of Newtown Conservation Commission are again offering their services to residents who want help identifying invasive plants for private homeowners. 

    Invasive plants have become an ever-increasing problem for Newtown, both in landscaped areas as well as forests and open spaces. Some invasives are actually sold in nurseries and arrive in our yards by planting them. Others have spread into uncultivated areas, crowding out native species and decreasing the overall health of our forests and open spaces.
