  1. Hello,
    I loved the section on Smokey Bear. I enjoyed this section because of the facts that I learned, and also the reminder that “only (I) can stop wildfires.” The reason I liked this section was because of all the new information I learned. For example, I didn’t know that Smokey’s name was Smokey Bear, I have been calling him Smokey the Bear since I was small. Also, I learned about the song, show and that this month is the 75th celebration of Smokey Bear. Thank you for this information!
