Trail Walks

We lead guided trail walks each month from October to May, to help Weston residents and their friends enjoy and appreciate the wonderful nature that surrounds us. The walks usually start at 2 PM and run 1–2 hours in different parts of town. Children and dogs are welcome, though dogs should be leashed and under control by their owners. Information on upcoming walks is posted in this site’s news section and in the Town Crier. Here’s the current schedule:

Excerpts from Walks on Weston Conservation Land

 
 

In 1999 Dr. Elmer Jones, a long-time Trustee of the Association, Professor at Northeastern University and immense fount of knowledge on plants, geology and natural and political history, wrote the book Walks on Weston Conservation Land, detailing some 18 interesting walks on Weston's open spaces. The book, available at the Conservation Commission office at Town Hall (or by mail from the Association) for $15, is an indispensable source of information — not only on our trails, but on flowers, wildlife and history in our town. No one in Weston should be without it. Some excerpts from the book are reproduced on the following pages:

Walk 5: Case Municipal Purposes Land

Walk 15: Fiske Town Forest

Walk 17: College Conservation Area

Walk 18: Ogilvie Town Forest

The late Professor Elmer Jones was a wonderful guide and resource on the wonders of Weston's trails and open space.
