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.

      Thoreau's book "Walden" will always hold a special place in my heart. It's one of my go to books for a sense of spiritual awakening/calm. Such a historical and spiritual place. Walden should be preserved until the end of time.

      explain how its good for economics when you can't breathe the air, farm the land, or drink the water. Besides if you don't work with nature, she'll kick your butt everytime- sincerely a hort.
