Join us as we dedicate our fire tower. Thank you to the Friends of Ouabache for their work to bring the fire tower back into climbing condition, and creating a plaza and walkway for it. Enjoy refreshments and climb the tower after the dedication.

12:30 pm Pictures and S'mores with Smokey Bear
Fire towers were once used to assist a "fire lookout" in searching for wildfires. Remember that only you can prevent forest fires. Come meet Smokey Bear and get you picture taken with him too.

1:00 pm Fire Tower History
Are fire towers making a comeback? Some states are adding fire towers back into their fire prevention plans. Hear about the historic use of fire towers and how it differs from modern fire spotting techniques.
