Today we visited the grave of Smokey the Bear. Smokey was a bear found separated from his mother and with burned paws after a terrible fire in 1950.
Smokey was laid to rest here in Capitan, New Mexico.
We learned a lot about fire prevention and safety. We also learned about how they fight forest fires and the parts of the fire triangle.
I worked on my Junior Ranger New Mexico Forestry book and earned a badge and a patch!
