First Day Hike
January 1, 2017, 12:00pm – 2:00pm
Start off the New Year with good company, a sprinkling of seasonal literary readings and a cup of hot chocolate!
Meet at the new Walden Pond Visitor Center at 12:00pm.
Join us for an introduction to the new net-zero Visitor Center and a hike to the original house site of Henry David Thoreau. The hike includes a stop at the Thoreau house replica, where historian Richard Smith portrays Thoreau in his house on New Year’s Day! Sit by the wood stove and enjoy his tales of 1847.
