A Volunteer’s story of its Restoration

Saturday, 3:00 p.m.

Find out what it’s like to be a fire lookout whose job it is to scan the horizon for smoke and alert the authorities before a fire becomes deadly. Human lookouts are becoming a remnant of the past. The Forest Service manages 153 lookout posts these days in Washington and Oregon, but only about 50 of them are staffed full- or part-time.

Russ Dalton will describe his work at the Miners Ridge Fire Lookout in the North Cascades.
