It’s That Time of Year…

It has been 66 years since the badly burned bear cub who became the representation of Smokey was rescued from a New Mexico forest fire that burned 17,000 acres of the Lincoln National Forest in the Capitan Mountains, and the USFS just celebrated 75 years of using the “Smokey the Bear” character to publicize the importance of fire safety.

It has been nearly thirty years since the fire in Yellowstone NPS. The scars are still easily seen on a drive-thru tour by car.

Do your part… Be Fire Smart!
