ANF South Mt. Hawkins Lookout Tower Rebuilding!
- Hi Gang...
The South Mount Hawkins Fire Lookout will rise from the ashes again
(with your help). The Angeles National Forest Fire Lookout
Association (a 501(c)(3) non-profit) has started a campaign to
rebuild the SMH Fire Lookout that was burned in the 2002 Curve Fire.
Due to major costs of the Curve and Williams fire to the ANF, a
private effort in cooperation with the ANF will rebuild the tower
and staff it with trained lookout volunteers.
Check out our website for more information, and donation if you are
interested. If you would also like to volunteer, the commitment
requires 4 training classroom sessions, and 1 tower training
checkout session. You must work 2 four hour shifts or one 8 hour
shift minimum per month during the fire season.
