Gearing Up For Smokey Bear's 75th Birthday!

HAPPY 75TH BIRTHDAY, SMOKEY BEAR!

We’re gearing up for his big day! Stop by the bookstore and checkout all of our new merchandise to celebrate 75 years of fire prevention!

Save the date! Saturday, August 10, 2019 at the Ranger Station FSVA will be hosting one big birthday party for one very important bear!

The boosktore will be very busy that day, so anyone and everyone is welcome to help out at the front desk!

Of course, Smokey will be there to greet the public and take photos!

Hope to see you all there!
