WALDEN POND PROTECTOR TO BE HONORED

Don Henley will be honored at a White House ceremony Monday for his role in establishing the Thoreau Institute, an educational facility located near Walden Pond.

He will be one of the 10 recipients of the National Humanities Medal.

Henley is founder and chairman of the Walden Woods Project, dedicated to the preservation of historically significant land surrounding Walden Pond in Lincoln.

The 100-acre area is the subject of Henry David Thoreau's literary work, "Walden," and is widely considered to be the birthplace of the American conservation movement.
