UNVEILING NEW EXHIBITS AT WALDEN POND VISITOR CENTER

WALDEN WOODS PROJECT FOUNDER, DON HENLEY, TO JOIN STATE OFFICIALS AT A PUBLIC CEREMONY UNVEILING NEW EXHIBITS AT WALDEN POND VISITOR CENTER.

 

 

This is a free event and open to the public. It will be one of the last public celebrations of
the 2017 Bicentennial of Thoreau’s birth.  This event is coordinated in partnership
between the MA Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) and the Walden Woods Project/Friends of Walden Pond.

Join us on Thursday, September 14th at 11 a.m. at the Walden Pond State Reservation (915 Walden St.; Concord, MA) for a special, 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.

For further information or to
RSVP, please e-mail wwproject@walden.org or call 781-259-4700.

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

The Walden Woods Project and
The MA Department of Conservation and Recreation.
