On August 8 the Rookery Bay Environmental Learning Center will offer “buy one, get one free” admission in honor of Smokey Bear’s 70th birthday. Since 1944, this legendary bear has reminded us of the dangers of forest fires and how we can do our part to prevent them.
Featuring hands-on activities and presentations this special opportunity will help you learn about Rookery Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve’s prescribed fire program, and how this careful process actually helps prevent wildfires and rejuvenate plant and animal communities. Take today to acknowledge Smokey’s lasting influence, and gain awareness about the Reserve’s unique ecosystems and how we can protect them. BOGO admission cannot be combined with other offers. Must pay at door, no registration necessary.
