Newton the Rough-Skinned Newt
Project Watershed’s newt logo was inspired by the rough-skinned newt, a common riparian zone inhabitant needing both terrestrial and aquatic habitats to survive. The very habitats that Project Watershed strives to protect. The newt mascot was created by was created by Coral Dunn, and the newt logo was created by Aaron Heppell.
In 2016, the newt mascot debuted at the Royston School Keeping It Living Award Ceremony. Royston School received the award for their contribution to salt marsh planting near the Royston Wrecks. The ceremony was held in the auditorium for the grade 1’s and 2’s. The newt got a warm welcome and everyone was excited to shake its hand and give it high fives.
