Fire Lookout Hosts greet visitors, explain the role of lookouts in the history of our local mountains, and share information about the forest ecosystem. Their mission is to preserve the lookouts, increase public awareness, and inspire visitors to conserve and care for public lands.

Participants must agree to two four-hour shifts once a month, May through November, and complete a Fire Lookout Host Interest Survey and mandatory training. Only one orientation and training session is conducted each year in April, at the beginning of the new fire season.
