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.
Therefore, I urge the Town of Concord to work with the Walden Woods Project toward conserving this key site.
