Rehabilitation of the Ute Mountain Lookout Tower @ Ashley National Forest
Sep 16 – Sep 20 all-day
Rehabilitation of the Ute Mountain Lookout Tower @ Ashley National Forest

Ute Mountain Lookout Tower is the first and the last standing fire tower with living quarters above ground in Utah, offering a panoramic view of the picturesque Uinta Mountain Range. Constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps between 1935-1937, the tower served as the fire lookout’s living quarters, thirty feet above the ground with only 196 square feet of space. While the lookout is no longer used to spot fires, it is a significant tourist attraction in the area and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Today it stands as a monument to the early years of fire prevention and detection of the Forest Service, an important part of our cultural heritage.

Dates: Session 1: Aug. 26th-30th; Session 2: Sept. 3rd-6th; Session 3: Sept 9th-13th; Session 4: Sept 16th-20th

Scope of Work: Ute Tower was a tourist attraction until its closing September of 2008 due to decay in the tower legs and stairway. HistoriCorps volunteers will reroof the tower, replace deteriorated timbers, and rehabilitate the windows, learning how to:

  • Reroof the cab
  • Remove, repair, and rebuild cross ties
  • Remove and rebuild stairs, catwalk and railing
  • Retro-fit joists and beams beneath platform
  • Scrape and paint all exterior surfaces

Lodging and Directions: Take Hwy 44 to Sheep Creek Geological Loop. The tower is located two and one-half miles west of the loop. Take the turn off on the unpaved and narrow road towards Spirit Lake. The tower is located 51 miles northwest of Vernal, UT at 8,834 feet elevation, Near Flaming Gorge Reservoir. Volunteers will be camping at Summit Springs Guard Station, approximately 3.5 miles east of Ute Tower. Volunteers also have the option of camping at the Ute Tower Site. More specific directions will be given upon registration.

Additional Information: The project will be managed and supervised by two or more HistoriCorps instructors and will be designed to optimize learning opportunities. Camping, tools, safety equipment, and meals will be provided by HistoriCorps but transportation and to and from the project is the responsibility of the participant. Volunteers are responsible for bringing their own camping gear. All crew members must be physically capable of lifting, climbing, bending, and kneeling for sustained periods each day at high altitudes in variable weather; previous carpentry, roofing/shingling, maintenance, historic preservation, landscaping, and/or construction experience helpful, but not required. If you have a fear of heights, this project is not recommended.

Presentation: Tar Sands Refining and Climate Justice on the Wasatch Front @ Chapman Library
Sep 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Presentation: Tar Sands Refining and Climate Justice on the Wasatch Front @ Chapman Library

Join Peaceful Uprising for a presentation about an issue that’s seriously impacting our air!

Tar sands are asphalt-like deposits, and mining and refining them is a last-ditch effort to extract usable fuel from the earth. An oil-like substance is cemented into the rock, and turning it into usable fuel requires intensive processing that releases huge amounts of toxins into our air and water. It’s pretty much the dirtiest energy imaginable–yes, refining it is even worse for our air quality, and health, than refining regular crude.

Tar sands refining has already begun in North Salt Lake, at the Chevron refinery, which processes tar sands from Canada. This happened under the radar, without most people even being aware of what tar sands are–even though tar sands developments in Canada have been severely affecting people’s health for years.

Now, tar sands mining could begin in eastern Utah in the coming year–unless we stop it, which Peaceful Uprising and allies like Utah Tar Sands Resistance are working to do. But, we need to GROW the popular movement to stop tar sands in order to ultimately succeed. By demonstrating popular resistance, we show potential investors that tar sands developments in Utah are facing major roadblocks. This has set back start dates substantially, giving us confidence that we CAN win–with YOUR help!

We’ll give a presentation on what tar sands and climate justice are, and how this struggle is part of the broader movement for climate justice. We’ll talk about the effects of tar sands mining and refining on our health, and what the campaign has been doing so far.

Then, we’ll open a space for asking questions, and for sharing concerns, knowledge, and ideas.

If you’re interested in getting involved with Peaceful Uprising’s work, this is a great way to plug in! If you just want to know more about the issue and get updates about important events, that’s great too.

If you want to set up a presentation for your congregation, PTA, or other group, email Volunteers@PeacefulUprising.org.
