Today is Smokey Bear’s birthday in the United States. Smokey is famous for reminding us that only we can prevent forest fires.
I learned about this birthday – and most of the other not-so-well known holidays I mention on my blog – on Earth Calendar.
Smokey and two cubs (Did Smokey have kids?) appeared in this 1962
And if you see a bear wearing jeans and a hat, make sure to wish him a happy birthday!
