The Monterey Chapter of the Forest Fire Lookout Association (FFLA-MRY) is a nonprofit volunteer organization dedicated to restoring, maintaining and staffing historic fire lookouts in Monterey County.
In 2019 volunteers restored the Chews Ridge Lookout. Since its return to service, dozens of trained volunteer fire lookouts have staffed the tower. Our volunteers are bringing early smoke detection capability back to the Ventana Wilderness in the Los Padres National Forest.
