Early History of the Forest Service and Fire Fighting — Friday May 6, 2016 — Sisson Museum

This Friday, May 6th at 7:00 PM, the Sisson Museum will be presenting two films about the history of fire.  The Greatest Good will tell when and why the USDA Forest Service was organized.  The second film, The Big Burn, will explain how wildfire policy was developed after the new agency had to face devastating fires in 1910 and what it has meant for our forests.

Both films are very well done and they tell the stories in an engaging way.  You will want to see these films!

This is a fundraiser for the museum so it can continue to tell the stories of our area.  Support your museum and have a great time too!
