Smokey Bear came to life as a national symbol in forest fire prevention posters over 50 years ago. In 1950, a badly burned cub was found clinging to a tree after a fire had devastated Lincoln National Forest in New Mexico. The cub was nursed back to health and named "Smokey" after the original poster bear. Commemorate Smokey Bear with this vivid and colorful patch. Iron to a coat or jacket, or simply add to your current collection!
