April 16-22 is Wildfire Awareness Week in Maine. To learn how you can prevent wildfires in your community, please join Maine’s Forest Rangers and Maine State Museum educators for a special event at the Maine State Library at 242 State Street, Augusta on April 18 from 10 AM to 1 PM.
Smokey Bear will be there, as well as several Smokey Bear paintings that are part of the Rudy Wendelin Collection. This family-friendly event will feature natural science touch tables, educational displays, and outdoor activities (weather permitting). A Ranger will read the story of Smokey Bear.
Hope to see you there, and remember, “Only You can prevent wildfires….”
