Come and celebrate Henry’s birthday! Local historian Richard Smith will portray Henry David Thoreau and receive guests at his house near the main parking lot at Walden Pond. As you wish him many happy returns of the day, he will regale you with accounts of his adventures and misadventures in Concord and beyond. This is an informative and entertaining program for visitors of all ages. This is a rolling program, so stop in any time for a visit. On hot summer days, holidays, and weekends, Walden Pond State Reservation often closes because of visitor capacity. Visitors are strongly encouraged to call the park headquarters (978-369-3254) and listen to the voice message before planning a trip or attending a program.
