Thoreau and Living Deliberately


“All good things are wild and free” - walk, talk and forage the woods with Michael Schleifer from the Thoreau Society and Laura Silverman from the Outside Institute.

Join us Sunday, October 21st at the Conservatory and Bindy Bazaar Trails at Bethel Woods. 

What do the modern ecological research, Underground Railroad, Harper’s Ferry, natural philosophy, environmental science, tracking indigenous plant evolution, migration of birds, and civil disobedience have to do with 1960’s Counter-culture? Thoreau at 200 reveals the roots of American discourse and history and the influence of Henry David Thoreau on current and 1960’s re-imagining of politics, self-sufficiency, economics, and the environment. Then all join for a foraging walk along the new Bindy Bazaar trails with local naturalist Laura Silverman from The Outside Institute.
