Join the Northwest Montana Lookout Association at the Cabinet Mountain Brewery to support a fundraising campaign for the restoration of fire lookouts located on the Kootenai National Forest.  The event will be held on March 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. through theCabinet Mountain Brewing Company’s Brews for Benefits Program. As part of this program, CMBC pledges to donate $1 of every beer sold between 6-8pm to Northwest Montana Lookout Association. The history of fire lookouts on the Kootenai dates back to 1910 when the first lookout platform and cabin were built on Star (Squaw) Peak; the cabin still stands today.  This summer, restoration and assessment work will focus on Northwest Peak, Meadow Peak, Mount Wam, McGuire Mountain, Big Creek Baldy, and Robinson Peak lookouts.  The NMLA works closely with the four Kootenai National Forest Ranger Districts to bring life back to these iconic structures.
