Come Meet Smokey Bear and His Forest Friends

Sep 14, 2019, 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM Location: 117 Harry Howard Ave. Hudson, NY

Join us at the FASNY Museum of Firefighting on September 14, 2019 at 10:30am and meet live forest animals from the Forest Park Zoo. Learn how fire destroys their habitats and can threaten the animals’ lives. Smokey Bear will greet and pose for pictures with children. A real Forest Ranger will also visit and show kids cool equipment used to fight forest fires. Kids can make a Smokey Bear craft and learn why “Only YOU Can Prevent Forest Fires.” It’s going to be a “wild” morning at the Museum, so don’t miss it! This program and admission to the Museum for the day is free to residents of Columbia County (with proof of residency: a drivers license for head of household) thanks to a generous grant award from Hudson River Bank and Trust Co. Foundation. The Museum is located at 117 Harry Howard Avenue in Hudson, New York on the campus of the Firemen’s Home.
