The Conservation Commission and the GIS department have developed a simplified version of the MapsOnline program that can be used on your smartphone to help you navigate through Weston’s conservation land. A few easy steps to get you on your way:
Bookmark the interactive map on your smartphone. Open it the next time you set off onto conservation land.
To determine your precise location, press “zoom” and “follow” near the bottom of the screen, and a blue circle will appear where you are situated.
If you discover a problem on the trail (tree down, erosion, etc.), you can take a screenshot of your location and email that image to the Weston Conservation Commission at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure there is enough info shown on the screen for staff to figure out where you are — it’s helpful if a nearby street and/or intersection number is shown. Also be sure to include a description of the problem in your email (e.g.: 8" diameter tree down across trail on March 8th).
An updated, large folding version of this trail map is available in the Conservation Commission office at Town Hall for $10.
