The Walden Woods Project preserves the land, literature, and legacy of Henry David Thoreau to foster an ethic of environmental stewardship and social responsibility, both cornerstones of Thoreau’s philosophy. WWP achieves this mission through the integration of land conservation, education, and research.
The WWP maintains the world’s largest collection of Thoreau-related documents and artifacts, located a half-mile from Walden Pond. Among the organization’s protected sites are Brister’s Hill, Bear Garden Hill and the certified-organic Farm at Walden Woods. The WWP is also the official “Friends of Walden Pond” group.
