Review for The Walden Woods Project, Lincoln, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In 2010 I became acquainted with the Walden Woods Project when visiting the Thoreau Institute during the Annual Gathering of the Thoreau Society. I could sense that this was the organization that could properly care for and extend Thoreau's literary, conservation, and political legacy. Since then, I've returned many times to do scholarly research in the institute's library, and benefit from the expertise of its curator, Jeffrey S. Cramer. More recently, I've given several of their stewardship lectures. Presently, I’m working with the Walden Woods Project on a guidebook to Walden Pond, the most famous kettle lake in America. -- Robert M. Thorson, Professor of Geology, author, and life-long Thoreauvian.
