The Weston Forest and Trail Association will conduct its next monthly trail walk on Sunday, May 6, 2018, prior to the Annual Meeting of the Association at 4 p.m. in the Weston Scout House on School Street. The walk will begin at 2:00 PM as usual and will last about an hour-and-a half.

This will be a collaborative walk on the Forbes Land, sponsored by Weston Forest and Trail Association and the Weston Garden Club. Observe blooming native plants, as we meander beside a brimming pond and along a gorgeous rushing brook. Discover a hidden bridge, all just moments from town center. Walkers will meet at the bench closest to First Parish on the town green at 2:00 pm. Please bring your friends. Children and well behaved dogs are welcome but must be on leash. Tail-gate refreshments will follow the walk.

A map and more details about the area can be found in the book Walks on Weston Conservation Land by Elmer Jones. This book ($5) and a trail map ($10) can be purchased at the Conservation Commission office in the Town Hall. Also check out Weston Forest & Trail Association’s new Facebook page. (Edited to show reduced book price.)

You do not have to be a member of the Weston Forest and Trail Association to join the walk, but please consider becoming a member. Your membership dues support the maintenance and preservation of Weston’s open space. For more information please contact the walk leader, Diana Chaplin (EDIT: contact info removed after walk).
