Important Announcement

Buck Rock, Delilah and Park Ridge Lookouts are currently closed and will not be staffed nor open to the public until further notice due to smoke impacts from the nearby Rough Fire. The Rough Fire, which was started by lightning on July 31st, is burning on the Sequoia National Forest, Sierra National Forest and Kings Canyon National Park. Our annual Open House event previously scheduled for the Labor Day weekend, has been cancelled.

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!
