Wondering what prevention project or work qualifies for a Smokey Bear Award?

Wildfire prevention service includes, but is not limited to: advertising campaigns; informational programs; training; wildfire risk assessments to prevent ignitions; committee leadership; volunteerism; and fundraising.

Take Jon Motsinger’s prevention work for example. He was the recipient of a 2016 Bronze Smokey Bear Award for his work to merge two of his passions – wildfire prevention and geocaching – into a highly successful, statewide outreach program for Smokey Bear’s 70th birthday. Watch this short clip provided by the Texas A&M Forest Service to learn more:
