Description:

Fire Towers from a Historical Perspective

Everyone enjoys the views from the cab of a fire tower, but why are they there in the first place? Please join Laurie Rankin, Director the NYS Chapter of the Forest Fire Lookout Association for an in depth look at why fire towers were placed on so many of the mountaintops in New York State. After you see and hear all of the details, you will be looking at things a bit differently on your next hike to one. Perhaps you will even want to get involved in restoring one. This one and one half hour slide show presentation and discussion is free of charge. Refreshments will be served.

When/Where: Thursday, July 27th at the Pine Hill Community Center in Pine Hill at 7:00 pm
