Big Hole Peak Lookout Rehabilitation, Final Phase
Lolo National Forest, Montana, 2016
by Libby Langston
Employees of the Plains-Thompson Falls Ranger District of the Lolo National Forest in western Montana have been working hard on the Big Hole Lookout Restoration Project with Passport in Time Volunteers for the past four years. This project has been a team effort from start to finish, made possible with the additional support and expertise of the Forest Service’s Northern Region and employees of the Lolo National Forest Supervisor’s Office. This video provides a visual story of the work of the Region 1 Historic Preservation Team and includes anecdotes from the original 1966 Lookout! This video also reveals the always unexpected events in the back country that Forest Service employees and hard working volunteers often encounter – in this case a large wildfire called Copper King.
