Smokey Bear to celebrate 70 years of vigilance

-A A +A

TELL CITY – On Aug. 9, the famous Smokey Bear will celebrate his 70th birthday.

Although he may be 70, he has no plans for retirement as his message, “Only You Can Prevent Wildfires,” is as relevant as ever.

To help Smokey celebrate, the Hoosier National Forest staff invite children entering kindergarten through fifth grade to make Smokey Bear a birthday card for chances to win prizes.

Cards may be dropped off or mailed to Hoosier National Forest, Tell City Ranger District, 248 15th Street, Tell City, IN 47586.
