Detailed Information:
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862), the author of WALDEN, "Civil Disobedience," and other famous writings, is justly regarded as the founder of the environmental movement in America. Thoreau lived in the Walden Woods during his famous sojourn at Walden Pond, and the Walden Woods was the living laboratory where Thoreau developed his seminal ideas on forest succession and the dispersion of seeds. The mission of the Walden Woods Project is to ensure that the integrity of this important ecosystem remains intact, even in the face of onslaughts from well-financed developers and officials who seem not to understand the cultural and ecological significance of this treasured landscape. In collaborating with the Thoreau Society on the Thoreau Institute, which is located in the midst of Walden Woods and less than half a mile from Walden Pond, the Walden Woods Project disseminates Thoreau's ideas to the public and supports research that clarifies and adds to Thoreau's many and varied legacies.
