Calendar of Events for 2022

We need your help to make a difference out there. This year we hope to have several volunteer steward programs going. Each program will come with an orientation session to get you started and a uniform. Locations vary from drive ups to gentle hikes. Will you please consider giving one of these programs a day of your time?

Sunday, July 17th: 11:00 AM, Friends of Sterling Forest (FSF) will be hosting a hike to the tower. Sterling Fire Tower was erected in 1922. In observance of the tower's centennial, guided hikes to the tower will be held in July, August, and September. Join the FSF for a moderately-paced hike to Sterling Fire Tower. We will be stopping along the way to enjoy a snack and the picturesque views. Total hiking distance is approximately 5 miles. Be sure to bring plenty of water/snack/lunch and wear hiking books or sturdy shoes. Registration is required. Please call 845-351-5907 to register.
