Smokey Bear Benchmark Magnet
This cast metal benchmark magnet honors Smokey Bear, representative of the longest-running public service campaign in US history that has warned us about the dangers of wildfires since 1944. The real-life Smokey Bear was a cub found in a tree in the midst of a wildfire in New Mexico’s Capitan Mountains in 1950. The New Mexico state game warden presented the cub to the Forest Service, with the understanding that he’d be dedicated to a publicity program of fire prevention and conservation. Display this magnet on your refrigerator or any other metal surface to remind yourself and others that, as Smokey Bear says, you can prevent wildfires.
