Stewardship Saturday On Southside – November 20
The Weston Conservation Department and Weston Forest and Trail Association (WFTA) are still looking for a few more volunteers for their trail work project this Saturday November 20 at one of the access trails to the beautiful WFTA-owned Hubbard Woods. The work will take place between 10 am – 12 noon.
Stewardship Saturdays are on the third Saturday of every month and focus on caring for some of the nearly 2,000 acres of conservation land and over 90 miles of off-road trails in Weston. Both Conservation and WFTA 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.
This Saturday join Weston Conservation Staff and WFTA volunteers to improve a section of perennially wet trail at Hubbard Woods. Work will include re-routing a short section of trail to higher ground and constructing a stepping-stone bog bridge. Participants will learn the basics of trail planning and construction.
