Thank you for registering for Smokey Bear LIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure, which celebrates the 75th anniversary of the Smokey Bear wildfire prevention campaign. We will periodically send out information about Smokey Bear LIVE and the 75th anniversary celebration.

  • Check out the web site to find lesson plans and other resources about Smokey Bear and wildfire prevention.
  • Make sure to put our two webcasts in fall 2019 on your calendar.
  • First, watch a pretaped video, “Smokey Bear LIVE: Only You Can Prevent Wildfires,” which will be webstreamed beginning October 6, 2019 in conjunction with National Fire Prevention Week. Learn about Smokey’s history as a national icon, the bear cub that was found and became the living symbol of Smokey, and Smokey Bear’s fire prevention message.
  • Then, participate in a LIVE webcast on November 7, 2019, from Capitan, New Mexico, where Smokey Bear was found as an injured cub and returned to be buried. This will be an interactive program in which students and others can send in questions about Smokey, wildfire prevention, firefighting in the past and now, how to prevent wildfires, and more.

For questions or information, contact Kristy Liercke at or 703-791-7359. Smokey Bear LIVE is a partnership of the USDA Forest Service, Prince William Network, and Prince William County Schools.
