"All Sequoia area lookouts are temporarily closed to public access while we try to keep our firewatchers safe from COVID-19.".

Our Mission

The Buck Rock Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to preserving the tradition of fire lookouts and other historic facilities. Founders were motivated to form this association because of mutual concern over the neglect, abandonment and destruction of many historic fire lookouts.


Our mission is to preserve fire lookouts for the purpose of fire detection, education, interpretation and historic preservation.


Our vision is to create an atmosphere where the concept of stewardship of our conservation heritage can flourish with children and adults from all walks of life.


Support the Buck Rock Foundation and together we can make a difference!
