Celebrating 75 Years of a Beloved Fire-Prevention Icon

Smokey Bear with a balloon for the 75th Year of Fire Prevention

Here in the Lincoln National Forest, we feel a particularly close connection to Smokey Bear and his message of fire-prevention. We are the home of the orphaned black bear cub that would become a living symbol. While we celebrate 75 years of Smokey Bear as an integral part of the nation’s popular culture, let’s take a look back at his captivating story!
