"Each town should have a park, or rather a primitive forest, of five hundred or a thousand acres, where a stick should never be cut for fuel, a common possession forever, for instruction and recreation. We hear of cow-commons and ministerial lots, but we want men-commons and lay lots, inalienable forever. Let us keep the New World new, preserve all the advantages of living in the country..." [Journal, 15 October 1859]
Henry David Thoreau.
We are citizens committed to preserving the vision of Henry David Thoreau by facilitating the purchase and protection of this land to foster an ethic of environmental stewardship and social responsibility to be used for education, conservation, and meditation.
