Sparky spent a day with his good friend Smokey Bear, the mascot of the Forest Service and a widely recognized face of wildfire prevention. The two of them got to attend a birthday party for Sparky hosted by Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) Bureau of Forest Fire Control, complete with birthday cake!
On Saturday, May 7, Sparky and Smokey will both be out doing work to protect their communities from wildfire, as part of National Wildfire Community Preparedness Day. Anyone who wants to join them can visit our website to learn how to create a project using our project idea list or find a project already going on to participate in.
Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
