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.

Tasks will include pruning, brush dragging, and invasive buckthorn removal on the edges of the Orchard. We will open up the gate to pull cars safely off Concord Rd; additional parking along the shoulder of Concord Rd. MAP
