The generosity of supporters since the Friends was formed in 2017 has supported the following:

  • Restoration of the historic Whipple Beal fence
  • Creation of the pollinator garden
  • The first official artist-in-residence 
  • Archives assessment 
  • Annual tree planting initiatives
  • Tree & Bird tours 
  • Ongoing partnership with the City of Newton Summer Internship Program

Thank you for helping to keep Newton Cemetery & Arboretum an exceptional resource.
