Since 1944, Smokey Bear has been educating the public about wildfire prevention. In 2019, Smokey Bear celebrated his 75th birthday. In order to honor this special occasion, the Natural Inquirer teamed up with Forest Service Conservation Education, the Symbols Cache, and FIND Outdoors to create some new educational materials. Smokey Bear now has his own scientist card and a new monograph on wildlfire education! Natural Inquirer also has other fire education materials. Click on the links below to learn more!
