The Eagles are set to play a special benefit concert for the Walden Woods Project at Citi Wang Theatre in Boston on September 16.

Special guest for the night will be Robert Redford, who will be presented with the Global Environmental Leadership Award.

The Walden Woods Project is a nonprofit organization committed to preserving the land, literature, and legacy of Henry David Thoreau through conservation, education, research and advocacy. Founded by recording artist Don Henley, the Project uses the land it has protected in Walden Woods to foster an ethic of environmental stewardship and social responsibility, both cornerstones of Thoreau’s philosophy.

The Walden Woods Project Global Environmental Leadership Award recognizes significant achievement in the areas of climate stability, biodiversity, natural resource stewardship, human understanding, and global environmental policy. It draws its inspiration from the foundational thinking of Henry David Thoreau and builds upon his ageless principles of environmental stewardship, global interconnectedness, and personal responsibility. Past recipients of the award include Bill Clinton.

“Bob Redford was an environmentalist long before the well-being of our natural resources became an international concern,” said Don Henley. “Throughout his extraordinary career as an acclaimed actor, director, and producer, he has devoted himself to myriad environmental initiatives too lengthy to enumerate. Redford has stated, ‘I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?’ I can’t agree more.”
