People and pet-friendly leashed dogs are welcome. (2 hrs)

Friday, April 26 at 100 pm - ‘Fire Tower/Seneca Point Historical Tour’ Please bring your binoculars and meet at the Fire Tower Parking Lot for an historical interpretive tour of the Fire Tower and Seneca Point by DCNR Conservation Volunteer, Greg Burns.

Saturday May 4 at 1000 am – ‘Bridge Clean Up’ Please join Friends of Cook Forest as we walk various trails in the park to clean old leaves and pine needles from our trail bridges to extend their lives.
