The Walden Woods Project

The non-profit Walden Woods Project was founded by recording artist Don Henley in 1990 to protect the land and waters celebrated in Thoreauís writing. Its mission is to protect land of ecological and historic significance surrounding Walden Pond, the famous retreat of author/philosopher Henry David Thoreau, and to support the Thoreau Institute and its educational initiatives related to the study of the environment and the humanities.

Since its inception, the Walden Woods Project has acquired nearly 150 acres near historic Walden Pond, much of which had been slated for commercial development. This land is now protected as open space for public enjoyment.

In addition to conservation, public education is a primary component of the organization's

mission. In order to foster an appreciation for Walden Woods and for other treasured natural areas throughout the world, in 1998 the Walden Woods Project established the Thoreau Institute at Walden Woods, an education and research facility located near Walden Pond. Its library houses the world's most comprehensive collection of research material about Thoreau. Its database is available worldwide via the Internet. In addition, the Institute offers a variety of on-site programs for scholars, and teachers and students from rural, suburban and urban schools.
