INDIAN LAKE -- Renowned photographer Carl Heilman will present his images of the new state lands purchased in cooperation with The Nature Conservancy from Finch, Pruyn & Co. at Indian Lake Theater here Wednesday, Aug. 20, at 7:30 p.m.

"These lands and their recreational opportunities are still a mystery to a lot of people," says theater Director Danielle Shaw. "We're lucky to have had someone as talented as Carl be one of the first to see and experience them and we're looking forward to having him share his stories and images with our audience."

Tickets are $5. For more information visit

The new state lands include 180 miles of rivers and streams; 175 lakes and ponds; 465 miles of undeveloped shoreline along rivers, streams, lakes and ponds; and six mountains taller than 2,000 feet. Parcels of the most interest include OK Slip Falls, the Essex Chain Lakes, and the Indian River Tract.

"We'll have information available on how to access these new recreational opportunities and Mike Carr and Connie Prickett from The Nature Conservancy will be there to tell the story of this historic land purchase. Carl will also bring some of his prints, calendars, and books full of his iconic Adirondack images," said Shaw.
