A Living History Program will be presented at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7, at Locust Lake Amphitheatre. Award winning outdoor writer Doyle Dietz, a Schuylkill County resident, has been hunting with traditional muzzle loading firearms and participating in pre-1840 living history events since 1976. He will appear in typical dress of an Eastern "longhunter" of that time period, discuss the hobby of "buckskinning" some of the historical attractions of the area, display various types of muzzleloaders from his private collection and demonstrate the loading and firing of flintlock rifle. His writing credits include Muzzle Blasts, Pennsylvania Game News, Pennsylvania Outdoor News, Bear Hunter, Lake Ontario Outdoors and Browse Line magazines, and his weekly "Experience The Outdoors" radio program is broadcast on Magic 105.5-. In FM and Oldies 1410-AM. In case of inclement weather, the program will be held in the pavilion located next to the campstore.
