Lincolnville — The Lincolnville Community Library, 208 Main St. Lincolnville Center, will host a free program on Tanglewood 4-H Camp: Past, Present and Future, Wednesday, Oct. 16 at 7 p.m.

Former director Cindy Dunham and current director Jessica Decke will trace the history of Tanglewood and tell how this camp along the Ducktrap River in Lincolnville has served for nearly 80 years as a place for young people from Maine and beyond to connect to the natural world and develop life skills. Sharing stories, photos and memories, they’ll tell about the role the Civilian Conservation Corps played in developing this part of Midcoast Maine starting in 1936 and why the Bangor-Brewer YWCA program for girls thrived at Tanglewood for so many years. They will also describe Tanglewood’s current connection to 4-H and the role it plays statewide as a leader in youth development and environmental education through its school programs, day and residential summer camps, adventure trips, and teen leadership programs.
