People walking and running around Bullough's Pond on August 18, 2014 were delighted to see a white heron on the banks and circling overhead.
A pair of blue herons are frequent visitors to Bullough's Pond, but August 18, 2014 represents the first recorded sighting of a white heron at the pond.
Calling Bullough's Pond, "A Hidden Jewel", the Newton Tab today devoted the entire front cover of the paper's "Newton Life" section to the 350th anniversary of the pond, the role the Bullough's Pond Association has played in protecting the pond, and the upcoming Bullough's Pond Fair.
Reporter Trevor Jones interviewed BPA President Marilyn Campbell and BPA Media Director Kathleen Kouril Grieser for the beautifully-written piece. He and the Tab's editor,
Emily Costello, prepared a gorgeous layout using historic images provided by the BPA and lovely new photos by Tab photographer Erin Prawoko. A sidebar promoted the schedule of events for the fair on September 29.
