Wanted: Trail Volunteers!
Weston is fortunate to have over 90 miles of trails in town. After the last two spring storms, a lot of trees and branches came down. Weston Forest and Trail Association (WFTA) and the Conservation Commission are working hard at clearing the trails, but we would appreciate your assistance.
Here’s how you can help:
On your own -
Bring a hand saw and loppers with you on your next walk. Trim and toss anything blocking a trail. (Toss branches as far into the woods as you can.) Leave the larger branches. We will cut these up later. It is much easier to do this when the brush is removed first.
Join a volunteer work day!
WFTA has scheduled three upcoming workdays. Bring gloves, bow saws, loppers, and a water bottle and snack to keep yourself hydrated and energized.
- Sunday, April 8th at 4:00 p.m. - We will clear as much as we can in the Cat Rock area (meet at the parking lot at the end of Drabbington Rd)
- Tuesday, April 10th at 9:00 a.m. - We will clear as much as we can in Jericho Forest (Meet at the parking area on Gun Club Lane)
- Sunday, April 15th at 4:00 p.m. - We will clear as much as we can in the College Pond area.(Meet at the parking area at Burchard Park (269 Concord Road)
Your assistance will help us to keep the trails open for all. And besides, working in the woods it is good for the body and soul, not to mention fun!
