here are a lot of things to like about Smokey Bear. Not only does he wear a cool hat, but he's by far the safest bear in the forest. Luckily, we can now take Smokey with us everywhere we go.
Keep Oregon Green
has teamed up with the USDA Forest Service
and the Oregon Department of Forestry
to launch a new license plate for the state of Oregon. Part of this design is a way to celebrate Smokey's 75th anniversary, coming up in 2019. Pre-sale is now open for the plates, and once 3,000 are purchased the Oregon Department of Motor Vehicles will begin production.
While your ride might look sweet, these plates are also a way to keep us thinking about ways to help protect our state.
"Each year, approximately two-thirds of Oregon's wildfires are human-caused and they are all completely preventable," says Keep Oregon Green's CEO Kristin Babbs. "Keep Oregon Green has been a household slogan since its inception in 1941, and this message is more important now than ever before. Wildfire awareness opportunities like this will ingrain it in Oregonian's DNA."
