Project #27: Walden Pond
GEOMORPHIC SETTING: Walden Pond is a 62-acre glacial kettle-hole pond in a Massachusetts state park and is a National Historic Landmark. Walden Pond was the setting of Henry David Thoreau’s classic, “Walden,” which has been read by thousands for over a century. Thoreau, a poet, philosopher, and naturalist, is considered to have begun the American environmental movement. The pond has attracted large crowds of bathers since Victorian times (Fig. 1).
