Smokey Bear’s Surprise 75th Birthday Party
Since 1944, Smokey Bear has protected America’s forests from unwanted, human-caused fire.
Smokey–one of the most-loved issue ambassadors of our time–and his signature phrase, “Only you can prevent wildfires,” are truly iconic. His message of wildfire prevention is the center of the longest-running PSA campaign in our nation’s history.
Though Smokey has been essential to the reduction of unwanted, human-caused wildfires over the last 75 years, he still needs help. Even today, nearly 9 out of 10 wildfires nationwide are caused by people. For his birthday, Smokey Bear will be making a special appearance at An Evening of Storytelling:
Friday, Aug. 9 from 7:00 – 8:00P
River’s Edge Natural Area
960 W. First St.
Loveland, CO 80537
All ages are invited to come and meet Smokey, listen to stories from his career of preventing wildfires and protecting our forests, and more.
