Don Henley will bestow Actor/Director Robert Redford with a special honor recognizing his support of environmental causes.

The Eagles will play this intimate benefit concert September 16th in Boston.

Redford will receive the Walden Woods Project's 2014 Global Environmental Leadership Award, which acknowledges a person or organization that demonstrates "represents vision, creativity, dedication and sacrifice in addressing global environmental challenges."

The event will raise money for the  Walden Woods Project, which was founded by Henley.

The show will take place at Boston's Citi Performing Arts Center/Wang Theatre, and will raise money for the Walden Woods Project.  That's the organization Henley founded in 1990 to oversee the protection of the Walden Pond area in Concord, Massachusetts, made famous by 19th century author Henry David Thoreau.  The charity also supports various environmental initiatives that are in line with Thoreau's naturalist beliefs.
