The Thoreau Country Conservation Alliance Archives

 

TCCA
Formed in the 1980’s by Edmund Schofield, Tom Blanding, J. Walter Brain, Vidar Jorgensen, and others, the Thoreau Country Conservation Alliance (T.C.C.A.) sought to garner support from Thoreauvians both local and around the world in order to stop the deforestation of Walden Woods, and to preserve the land surrounding Walden Pond. Its efforts were successful, eventually catching the attention and support of Don Henley who further raised money and awareness, helping to give way to the Walden Woods Project which continues their work to this day.
