Visitors to the Smithsonian’s National Zoo can celebrate 75 years of preventing wildfires through this bilingual exhibit featuring the history of Smokey Bear.
Exhibit highlights include an iconic Smokey statue, vintage posters and photographs of the real Smokey Bear, who came to the Zoo as a cub and became one of its most famous residents.
Visitors can also learn about the innovative technology Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute scientists use to study how species interact with their environment and track how ecosystems respond to global changes—including wildfires.
This exhibit was made possible by the United States Department of Agriculture's Forest Service. Learn more at smokeybear.com.
