The Walden Woods Project sponsors the Stewardship Lecture Series to celebrate innovation and creativity in environmental stewardship and to highlight the work of those who are promoting the values and ideas embodied by Thoreau. The Lecture Series features talks, panel discussions or media presentations featuring individuals at the cutting edge of a renewed environmental and social justice movement.  Programs are all free and open to the public, unless specified.
