This event marks an exciting new chapter for our organization involving a partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR), which manages the WPSR.
As a result of this collaboration, Walden Pond visitors from near and far (including school groups) will have new opportunities to learn about the life and writings of Thoreau and how they guide us in addressing the environmental and social reform challenges of our time. While the WWP will continue to advance its core mission to preserve Walden Woods and to foster a new generation of environmental stewards through educational and research initiatives, we are eager to work with DCR in engaging an even broader audience in preserving Walden for future generations and in keeping Thoreau’s legacy alive.
RSVPs are not required for attendance. The ceremony will take place, rain or shine, in front of the visitor center on Route 126 in Concord, MA, across from Walden Pond.
