With 2,000 acres of conservation land and a rural aesthetic, Weston has an abundance of wildlife, from turkeys to coyotes, and even bears. Many wild creatures find suburban areas appealing and are becoming more popular in our area. Below are some resources for residents to help understand any possible encounters.
