Forest Watch Camera Systems
The Forest Watch Camera Systems operate in Butte County at Sawmill Peak and other prominent locations. These cameras have the ability to operate 360 days a year and 24 hours a day to watch for fires. Bare on the Ridge raised funds to install the Sawmill Peak camera. They also fund the on-going, monthly expenses related to this camera.
