History

The original Mara forest fire lookout was built in 1925 and it was replaced with a new structure in 1950, which was used until 1998. As the building was in poor condition, there was talk of removing it. Thankfully, the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre came to the rescue and took responsibility for the structure, including making repairs. In 2012, the BC government provided funds for a complete restoration and then took over management of the site through Recreational Sites and Trails BC.
