Kids can earn a patch by visiting fire lookout towers


Visit 5 NH fire lookout towers and earn this patch

I came across this activity on the NH Division of Forest and Lands (NHDFL)website. NHDFL offers a patch to kids and adults who visit five NH fire lookout towers through an initiative called the Fire Lookout Tower Quest program.

The mission of the program is to increase the public’s recognition of, and appreciation for, the critical roles that the state’s fire towers play in the protection, stewardship and sustainable use of New Hampshire’s forests.

Select five of the 15 fire tower locations found at this link and plan your hike.  Make sure that you are properly equipped and prepared physically before attempting your hike.

Document the date of your visit on the visitor register found at this link.  Once you have visited five different fire towers simply fill out the request form found at this link and mail it to “Tower Quest Program” at the address that is listed. 

In a few weeks you will receive your complimentary Tower Quest patch, certificate, and a letter in recognition of your accomplishment.
