Memorabilia and Sensible Tips From Smokey The Bear

September 4, 2011 by · 1 Comment 


Since it’s Labor Day weekend, I thought it would be fun to feature the Smokey the Bear website. I just discovered this useful resource and was quite impressed with Smokey’s kid friendly tips for building a campfire. I also appreciated his tips for choosing a site and  extinguishing the campfire as well.

While poking through his website, I discovered  “Smokey’s Journey!”   A nifty section on the website, Smokey’s Journey features a timeline of Smokey’s role throughout American history.  The timeline starts in 1940. You will find  fun memorabilia and radio ads recorded by the likes of Bing Crosby. The resource section has lots of tools for teachers and parents who want to instruct children. There is also a map pinpointing where there are forest fires currently burning.

It’s obvious that Smokey the Bear has been working hard for decades. So, if you haven’t thought about Smokey lately, why don’t you do so this Labor Day weekend and check out this helpful site!

  1. I have found Smokey the Bear immensely useful as well. Thanks for bringing my attention to the children, kid friendly sections again. I do believe I may have overlooked. Fire knowledge and taking precautions is not only for adults but the little ones as well, after all they do sometimes love to strike a match or two!Publisher,
