Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl:
Home Sweet Home

February 13, 2010- May 13, 2010

Two beloved American icons came to life in this educational, interactive exhibit for children, Smokey Bear & Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home, created in collaboration with the USDA Forest Service and sponsored locally by AT&T and the USDA Forest Service.

The exhibit helped bring kids to nature and nature to kids. Families were encouraged to spend time together outdoors and children were inspired to discover and care for the natural resources that sustain our world - our home sweet home.

"This exhibit was a natural fit with new programs that our education staff is implementing. For instance, Growing Up WILD is an award-winning early childhood education and training program for educators and caregivers that builds on children's sense of wonder about nature and invites them to explore wildlife and the world around them," explains Angel Rohnke, Museum Education Coordinator.
