As part of her senior internship with the Weston Conservation Commission, Emma Walsh designed and installed interpretive signage at 3 conservation areas in Town at Cat Rock and 80-Acre Conservation Area (end of Drabbington Way and Indian Hill Road), Jericho Town Forest (Off Gun Club Lane and Concord Road), and College Pond Conservation Area (at Burchard Park off Concord Road).
The new signage includes a trail map along with information on the Conservation Commission, Weston Forest and Trail Association, and Weston’s dog bylaw. QR Codes were developed for visitors to learn more about these organizations and Weston’s dog walking rules.
A color map showing all town trails can be purchased from the Conservation Department in Town Hall for $10. The history and ecology of the conservation areas are described by Professor Elmer E. Jones in his book Walks on Weston Conservation Land. It is available for purchase at the Conservation Office in Town Hall. The price is $15 and helps cover the cost of printing and distribution.
