Smokey Bear Hometown Association


The Association helps support the Smokey Bear Historical Park. The Park houses memorabilia about Smokey Bear and the History of Wildland Fire prevention. It has a two acre park that showcases the climate zones of New Mexico using only native plantings. A xeriscaped area is out front. Most importantly it is the final resting place of Smokey Bear, the living symbol of fire prevention. Smokey Bear had been found as a cub in a fire in the Capitan mountains in 1950 and after 26 years was brought back to be buried at the Park. From reliving past memories of older visitors to creating new memories for younger visitors; educationion about fire prevention and the importance of healthy forests and healthy watersheds continues to be the goals of Smokey Bear Historical Park.
