We invite the community to come out and enjoy this free annual event. Smokey Bear Day provides a family-friendly opportunity to learn why fire is an important natural component of this globally-rare ecosystem.” Visitors will learn how the Commission uses prescribed fire to keep the Pine Bush, listed as a National Natural Landmark, a healthy habitat for the unique species of plants and animals that thrive there. Smokey Bear and a New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Forest Ranger will make appearances throughout the day, and Commission Fire Management and Education staff will be on hand.
