Last Sunday Program: Fire Lookouts – The Last Sentinels of the Methow
August 25, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
Join the Methow Valley Interpretive Center for the next in their Last Sunday Series with presenter Mike Liu. Find out about the last remaining fire lookouts on the Methow Valley Ranger District. The District is over 1.3 million acres in size and hosts the largest number of remaining lookouts on the Okanogan Wenatchee National Forest. Learn about the unique design and locations of each of the eight fire lookouts (Monument 83, Slate Peak, Mebee, Goat, First Butte, North 20 Mile, Lookout, and Leecher) and a little bit of lookout lore.
Michael Liu retired after working 36 years for the US Forest Service spending his last 9 years as the district ranger for the Methow Valley. He has visited each of the eight fire lookouts and supports restoration efforts to retain these last remaining sentinels from a bygone era.
Last Sunday presentations are open to the public and free of charge, but donations to the Interpretive Center are greatly appreciated.
The Methow Valley Interpretive Center is located in Building #2 on the TwispWorks campus.
