March 3, 2019 at 2:00 PM: Join us to walk the Case Estates!
Updated: Oct 28, 2019
The Weston Forest & Trail Association will conduct its next monthly trail walk on Sunday, March 3 at 2:00 PM led by Ann Wiedie and Maryann Pappanikou. For March, we will explore the Case Estates area which is one of the newest open space areas in Weston. Walkers will meander through established Rhododendron groves, see specimen Hollies, walk the new Legacy Trail before it becomes paved, see remnants of 19th century estate buildings, enjoy the cool of a pine forest, and see construction of a new boardwalk over wetland.
We will meet at the lower lot of the Weston Rec Center where parking should be plentiful. Dress appropriately for the day; WFTA walks are rarely canceled for inclement weather. Or as the Norwegians say “there is no bad weather, only bad clothing.”
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. Please bring your friends and family; children are encouraged! Well-behaved dogs are welcome but must be on leash. Tail-gate refreshments will follow the walk.
Trail maps of all Weston conservation land can be purchased at the Conservation Commission office in the Town Hall. You can also keep track of us on Facebook and Instagram. For more information please contact the walk leader, Ann Wiedie, (edit: contact info removed after walk).
You can read more about the Case Estates in Chapter 5 of Elmer Jones' book Walks on Weston Conservation Land, also available at the Conservation Commission office.
