The Story of Smokey

Smokey the Bear is one of the most recognizable characters on roadside signs, as he cautions us to watch out for forest fires. But who was the real Smokey? How did he happen to become a symbol? This article written in Centennial Gregg by me will tell you.

  1. I never knew this story about the bear cub.  I had to look up the song on YouTube, too.  I guess that was a little bit before my gradeschool days.  I do remember the Smokey the Bear commercials, but never knew the story behind it.  Enjoyed the story!  Rather timely, too, with all the wildfires out west (hope everyone is safe out that way!)
