Thoreau’s Bicentennial Year

2017 was a remarkable year in Walden Woods and Thoreau Country. On the 200th anniversary of Henry David Thoreau's birth, there were many celebrations, activities, and remembrances of his life and literature. The Walden Woods Project and a wide variety of Thoreau-focused partners, both individuals and institutions, worked throughout the year to celebrate the life of one of America's most important and influential authors.
