Weston Forest and Trail Association, Inc.

In 1955, twelve founders, who understood that the sprawl of suburban development after World War II would put immense pressures on semi-rural towns like Weston, founded Weston Forest & Trail Association. For many years, the heart of the organization was the late Dr. William Elliston, physician, gentleman farmer and amateur naturalist. A part of the conservation land, Elliston Woods, is named in his honor.

Weston forest and trail association
The Weston Forest and Trail Association is a volunteer organization responsible for working with land owners to encourage land conservation or land development consistent with Weston's rural character, and for stewardship of existing conservation land. WFT has helped to build and supports the maintenance of approximately one hundred miles of trails. The Association also sponsors trail walks and activities to encourage Weston residents to use and become more familiar with the more than 2000 acres of conservation land in town.
