Like huge fireflies dotting the Forest Preserve, the Catskill fire towers will be lit up at 9:00 PM on Saturday, August 31 for approximately 30 minutes (Raindate-Sunday, September 1). The fire towers that remain from the original pattern are roughly nine miles apart on some of the highest Catskill peaks: Overlook, Mt. Tremper, Hunter, Utsayantha, Balsam Lake, and Red Hill.
In honor of Fred Lamb, we are lighting the cab of the Berry Hill Fire Tower at the same time the Catskill Towers are being lit. Fred passed away last year, he was our director for the renovations we are doing at Berry Hill.
We lucked out with the weather, the storms by passed us.
