Join us on Thursday, September 14th, at 11:00 a.m. as Walden Woods Project Founder, Don Henley, joins state officials, EOEEA Secretary Matthew Beaton and DCR commissioner Leo Roy, at a public ceremony to unveil new exhibits at the Walden Pond Visitor Center. We will also be showing a sneak peek of a new Ewers Brothers film executive produced by Ken Burns. The film chronicles the life and legacy of Henry David Thoreau.

The new, interactive “Where’s Your Walden” exhibit will also be unveiled and experienced by visitors for the first time. Thoreau believed that we should each have a special place of refuge, beauty, meaning, or inspiration. His was at Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts. In this exhibit, we invite the visitor to consider their own special place in the world –their Walden – and their connection to it.

The Visitor Center features a number of unique interpretive exhibits about Thoreau, his time at Walden, his influence around the world, and the geographic, historic and ecological features of the Walden Pond State Reservation, managed by DCR.

The event will be held rain or shine in a tent next to the Visitor Center. RSVPs are not required but encouraged. Seating is available on a first come/first serve basis. Parking is free at this event.

We look forward to seeing you on Sept. 14th!
