The Corry Public Library will host Kirk Johnson, founder of the Friends of the Allegheny Wilderness, on Wednesday beginning at 6:30 p.m.

The public is being invited to this free event.

Friends of the Allegheny Wilderness seeks to foster an appreciation of wilderness values and benefits, and to work with local communities to ensure that increased wilderness protection is a priority of the stewardship of the Allegheny National Forest, Pennsylvania’s only national forest.

Johnson’s program is titled, “Keystone Wilderness: A Citizen’s Wilderness Proposal for Pennsylvania’s Allegheny National Forest.”

The program will include a 16-minute film that features photography and video of the prospective areas to be protected.

It was produced by Friends of the Allegheny Wilderness.

Following the screening, Johnson will give a 30-minute PowerPoint presentation on his organization’s efforts for the forest.

A question and answer period will also be held.
