Since 1944, Smokey Bear has taught millions of Americans about their role in preventing wildfires. Seventy-five years later, Smokey is celebrating a milestone birthday! Come to the museum to hear about the history of Smokey the Bear, tackling wildfires in southern Nevada and wildfire prevention.
Our speakers serve on the front line of forestry fire-fighting and prevention – so very different from urban fire-fighting.
Find out more from Ray Johnson and Brent Van Gundy from the US Forest Service and Brett Waters from the Nevada Division of Forestry. It will be a fascinating and fun event with fire-fighting equipment to see as well as vintage Smokey Bear!
