Smokey Bear is about to star in his own webcast. The Forest Service is teaming up with broadcasters in New Mexico and Texas to create a virtual field trip featuring the famous face of wildfire prevention.
Through the interactive program, students and others can send in questions about Smokey, as well as the history of firefighting and other topics. The webcast will air in November from Capitan, the birthplace of Smokey Bear.
That’s also where this weekend, “Smoke Bear Days” are underway celebrating the spokes-bear’s 75th birthday. Events continue Saturday through 11 p.m. To check out the schedule, click here.
