Just before leaving office President Obama proclaimed the 87,000 acres Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument in north-central Maine. The Maine Woods was made famous by the writings of Henry David Thoreau in the 1850s and later saw such visitors as Theodore Roosevelt and Maine Governor Percival Baxter, who later designated the lands to the immediate west of the National Monument to become Baxter State Park. Hear the story behind the monument, see photos and hear about the firsthand experience of John Kashwick and Jonathan Wall’s travel to the Monument. Please join us December 4th (Wed) at the North County Branch Library in Clinton at 7:00pm. The program, presented by the Hunterdon Warren Group of the Sierra Club, is free and open to the public!
