Elected Officials and Residents of the Town of Concord, Massachusetts

Protect Walden Woods

    1. Petition by

      The Walden Woods Project

On Earth Day, April 22, 2013, the people of Concord, Massachusetts took a historic vote at their annual Town Meeting.  They defeated a proposal to construct a bus maintenance and fueling facility on town-owned land near Walden Pond.  However, this 35-acre site remains vulnerable to uses and development in the future that are inappropriate for a site so close to Thoreau’s Walden Pond.  The Walden Woods Project needs your support for the permanent conservation of this municipal parcel.  Your voice will make a difference as our non-profit organization continues to lead the fight for the preservation of Thoreau’s Walden Woods – the birthplace of the American environmental movement.

      The development in that area is out of control; people need to connect with the beauty of nature in the spirit of Thoreau. Two Trees, which side by side -- I hope they can withstand this tide. The tide of so-called progress in which we obliterate the beauty we need in order to be happy. PLEASE!
