Congratulations! You found a Smokey Bear trackable!
For 75 years, Smokey Bear has protected America’s forests from unwanted, human-caused wildfires. Smokey – one of the most-loved issue ambassadors of our time – and his signature phrase, “Only you can prevent wildfires,” are truly iconic.
Though Smokey has been essential to the reduction of wildfires over the last 75 years, he still needs help. Even today, nearly 9 out of 10 wildfires nationwide are caused by people. In fact, his message is even more relevant today as people are living closer and closer to wildlands and more frequently choosing outdoor recreation activities. Smokey may be 75, but he’s still going strong and his message is more important now than ever before.
Only YOU can prevent wildfires, and here’s how! While at home or on camping trips, follow these important safety tips:
- Campfire Safety
- Equipment Use and Maintenance
- Backyard Debris Burning
This Smokey Bear trackable is provided by the Smokey Bear Wildfire Prevention campaign, which is administered by the USDA Forest Service
, the National Association of State Foresters
and the Ad Council
. Created in 1944, it is the longest-running public service advertising campaign in U.S. history, educating generations of Americans about their role in preventing wildfires. Learn more at smokeybear.com

Ole Smokey's mission is to make it to the island of Ibiza. Ibiza is an "island in the sun where restless souls may find each other". This is my very first trackable and it is also my personal dream to retire in Ibiza. Perhaps when I finally do you make it to that magical island this bear will be there to greet me, and I will know that my journey in life has not been in vain.
