Steep, wooded slope with wildflowers and ferns.
|Jeremiah and Carolyn Fine Friedman purchase a house on one acre of land that extends from Prospect Park downhill to Dexter Road.
||Carolyn Fine Friedman receives legal advice that her property could be divided into two buildable lots fronting on Prospect Park, each one suitable for a large new house.
||Friedman subdivides land, and donates downhill parcel to Newton Conservators to help "see nature survive the war that we humans continue to wage upon it."
||The Conservators oversee tree pruning. Volunteers from the neighborhood remove invasive plants and replace them with native trees, shrubs, and flowers.
