Smokey Bear Turns 69

SmokeyToday, Smokey Bear is 69 years old.  He’s long been the symbol of safety in the woods, especially in our national forests.

Today he was treated to a birthday party at a local restaurant, complete with cake.  It was sponsored by the U.S. Forest Service, which depends on Smokey to help guarantee fire-free fun in the Kisatchie National Forest.
