The Walden Woods Project

The Walden Woods Project is headquartered in Lincoln, MA, in the heart of Walden Woods.The Walden Woods Project is a nonprofit organization committed to preserving the land, literature, and legacy of Henry David Thoreau through conservation, education, research and advocacy. Founded by recording artist Don Henley, the Project uses the land it has protected in Walden Woods to foster an ethic of environmental stewardship and social responsibility, both cornerstones of Thoreau’s philosophy.

Henry_David_Thoreau_-_Dunshee_ambrotpe_1861Henry David Thoreau lived in the mid-nineteenth century during turbulent times in America. He said he was born “in the nick of time” in Concord, Massachusetts, during the flowering of America when the transcendental movement was taking root and when the anti-slavery movement was rapidly gaining momentum. He was at once philosopher and naturalist; abolitionist and teacher; scientist and moralist; poet and surveyor; pencil maker and author.

Walden Woods is the 2,680-acre landscape 18 miles west of Boston that inspired Henry David Thoreau. Even if you never visit Walden Woods, you can sense the importance of protecting the place that cradled Thoreau’s philosophies and led to the American land ethic, the modern conservation movement, and their national parks system. They manage nearly 170 acres within Walden Woods and work to ensure that this national treasure remains a model of preservation and conservation to inspire an international ethic of environmental stewardship for generations to come.
