Don Henley has tapped good friend Billy Joel to provide the musical entrainment on September 6th at the 2019 Walden Woods Global Environmental Leadership Award Dinner. The event, which will take place in Boston, Massachusetts at Boston Park Plaza, will honor actor Ed Begley, Jr. and his wife, Rachelle Carson-Begley.

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.”

Don Henley spoke about the role Henry David Thoreau's writings have played in his life: “Well, I discovered Thoreau's writings when I was about 21 years old. They helped, along with Emerson's writings, they helped give me the courage to become a songwriter. So I credit Thoreau and Emerson with my songwriting career, to an extent.”
