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:

  1. Bookmark the interactive map on your smartphone. Open it the next time you set off onto conservation land.

  2. 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.

  3. 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 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).

Excerpts from Walks on Weston Conservation Land

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 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; see above for how to purchase a copy. 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.
