Default 3.4 cam oil seal replacement

So I've made it about halfway through a timing belt replacement, and I discovered a leaking camshaft oil seal on the passenger side of my engine (3.4).

Can anybody offer some advice on the best way to remove the leaking seal? Best method I've come across is to use a flathead screwdriver to carefully pry it out, but the risk of marring the cam has me kind of nervous. It also looks like the seal would be more accessible if I remove the valve cover... Would it make sense to do this, or is it easy enough to pry out? Thoughts?
