Karen Hollingsworth, nationally recognized nature photographer, will present "Let's Go Wild," on Thursday in Homer and Oct. 22 in Kenai. This multi-media presentation set to music showcases the wildlife of America's National Wildlife Refuges.

Alaska Maritime and Kenai National Wildlife Refuges are sponsoring "Let's Go Wild" with Karen Hollingsworth to celebrate National Wildlife Refuge Week. The Homer program on Thursday will be held at the Alaska Islands and Oceans Visitor Center. The Kenai program on Oct. 22 will be held at the Kenai Visitors and Cultural Center. Both events start at 7 p.m. and admission is free.

Karen Hollingsworth has explored over 400 national wildlife refuges, photographing their unique wildlife and scenic beauty. Her images appear regularly in national magazines, books, and in photography exhibits. In addition, she and her late husband John were the photographers for the following books: "Seasons of the Wild, America's National Wildlife Refuges: A Complete Guide," and "The Smithsonian book of National Wildlife Refuges."

Karen is a founding member of the North American Nature Photography Association and a trustee of its foundation. She is also a past board member of the National Wildlife Refuge Association. When not in the field, she works out of her home offices in Minnesota and Maine where she and her husband Doug Grann keep busy with their numerous pets, gardens, and honeybees.
