Tim Caverly, former Allagash Waterway Supervisor, will visit the Camden Public Library Tuesday, Aug. 20 at 7 p.m. to present Allagash Tails and Tales.

The multi-media show includes music and historic photographs as well as stories of Caverly's personal experiences while living in the woods and canoeing down the river.

“People will experience the Allagash and the north woods in a whole new way,” Caverly said in a news release.

Caverly has spent his life in Maine’s outdoors. Growing up shadowing his father, who was a fire warden with the Maine Forest Service, and his brother, a ranger in Baxter State Park, it was natural for him to seek a career in the outdoors. He is originally from Skowhegan and has a bachelor of science degree from the University of Maine at Machias.

While in college, Caverly began working as a ranger at Sebago Lake State Park for the State Parks and Recreation Commission. After Sebago, he continued his employment with the Department of Conservation with assignments as a manager of Aroostook and Cobscook Bay State Parks, as well as a regional supervisor of the Allagash Region, which included the Allagash Wilderness Waterway and the Penobscot River Corridor. He was supervisor of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway for 18 years.

In 1999, Caverly retired from the department after a 32-year career. He resides in Millinocket, and worked for five years in the Millinocket School System. He now writes and presents programs full-time throughout New England, enjoys raising golden retrievers, and sharing stories about the Maine woods.
