Fire Lookout Restoration Projects
For more than 20 years the SMS has led the way in the restoration of historic fire lookouts, guard stations, and other symbols of public service constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).
Our volunteers together donate thousands of hours each year toward:
- the stabilzation and rehabilitation of historic structures
- rehabiltation of soils disturbed by off-road vehicular travel
- scanning for and reporting forest fires
- partnering with agencies like the USDA Forest Service to serve the public good
The SMS has been the leader in fire lookout restoration since 1989.
