Stewardship Saturdays

Join the Weston Conservation Department and Weston Forest and Trail Association (WFTA) on the third Saturday of every month for stewardship and camaraderie as we work collaboratively to manage nearly 2,000 acres of conservation land and over 90 miles of off-road trails in Weston.  Both organizations rely on volunteers to assist with the management of these incredible resources. Stewardship Saturday projects include invasive plant management, trail construction, and maintenance, boardwalk and bridge construction, trash pickup, stone wall beautification, etc.

Annual Dog Poop Pickup @ The Reservoir – 10 a.m. to noon

Join Weston Conservation Staff and WFTA volunteers to scout the edges of the Weston Reservoir, as well as the trails, and pick up left-behind dog poop bags and other trash. The trails at the Weston Reservoir are open to the public through a generous agreement with the Massachusetts Water Resource Authority (MWRA) and we need to make sure the area stays clean, both to protect water quality within the Reservoir and to hold up our end of the agreement with MWRA. Park at the main Reservoir Parking Lot on Ash Street.  MAP
