The Glacier Park Fund’s Heaven’s Peak Legacy Project has reached its goal of $36,000 allowing work to begin on the historic fire lookout this August. This is the fund’s first legacy project to reach its goal.While the 1945 lookout is structurally sound, the deteriorating roof and missing shutters have threatened its long-term survival. The lookout was constructed by Civilian Public Service (CPS) workers.
The work involves stabilizing the roof, repairing and reconstructing shutters, repairing and painting exposed exterior wood surfaces, and masonry stabilization.
A grand-nephew of one of the men who constructed the lookout has formed a volunteer group to assist the Glacier Associates and local volunteers with the project.
