Junior Field Trip to Walden Pond
“I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.”
Henry David Thoreau
From 1845-1847, transcendental author and nature enthusiast lived in a tiny self-built hut located on a small plot of land in Concord, MA near Walden Pond. Years later he published a book of writings on his experience living the simple life title “Walden.” Today the land exists as a Massachusetts State Park and nature preserve. The land where his hut once stood is marked by cement posts and a cairn, in which visitors can place a rock in memory of Thoreau and his teachings.
