Join us in fall 2019 for a Distance Learning Adventure to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Smokey Bear wildfire prevention campaign.
You can participate by:
Smokey Bear is a cherished national icon who continues to remind folks to be responsible when using fire outdoors. The campaign began in 1944 as part of the war effort to protect forested land from being burned by unwanted, human-caused wildfires, so this is the 75th anniversary of the Smokey Bear icon. In 1950 an injured bear cub became the living symbol of Smokey and spent his life promoting fire prevention from the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. After 75 years, Smokey’s message is still relevant today.
During this distance learning adventure, learn how natural resource managers and communication specialists have worked together to promote Smokey’s message to significantly reduce the number of wildfire and protect lives and property for millions of people.
