Camden — The Camden Public Library, at 55 Main St., invites the public to experience a journey to one of the last unprotected wilderness areas within the United States — the proposed 3.2 million-acre Maine Woods National Park — in a multi-media presentation on Tuesday, July 24, from 6 to 7 p.m.

The professional photography team of Lee Ann Szelog and Thomas Mark Szelog will guide participants into the proposed park to experience and learn more about this fragile ecosystem during the presentation, featuring the music of folk singer, Pete Seeger. Visitors can also view the Szelog’s fine-art photography exhibit, “Imagine the Maine Woods National Park,” that is on display in the Jean Picker Room at the Library through July 30.

Since 2007, The Szelogs have been putting a face to the land that is the proposed 3.2 million acre park through their Maine Woods National Park Photo-Documentation Project. In other work, they have won numerous local, regional, and national awards for their photographs and have written and photographed two books: the multi-award-winning “Our Point of View-Fourteen Years at a Maine Lighthouse,” and “By a Maine River – A Year of Looking Closely.”
