In honor of Henry Thoreau’s 200th anniversary, historian and naturalist Dr. Dann will be walking (and driving) from New York City to Thoreau Farm.

Performing Captain of a Huckleberry Party – his provocative celebration of Thoreau in riddle, rhyme, and story – in key towns along the way, Dr. Dann hopes to inspire a new generation of Americans to take up Thoreau’s practice of enlivened observation of Nature and enlightened citizenship.

Dr. Dann will conclude his Captain of a Huckleberry Party where it all began: at Thoreau Farm!

Historian, naturalist, and troubadour Dr. Kevin Dann is the author of 10 books. He has taught at Rutgers University, University of Vermont, and State University of New York.
