Special Guest Stops by Wyoming Wednesday

The last of this season's Wyoming Wednesday featured Cheri Jones, a recreation specialist with the U.S. Forest Service.

Fifty years ago the Wilderness Act was passed and Jones presented an interactive program giving a bit of history and the importance of preserving our national forests.

Jones also talked about fire safety in the wilderness and that's when everyone was in for a big surprise when the living symbol for forest fires, Smokey Bear stopped by.

Twelve year-old McKailyn Malles was paying attention. She knew the five rules for campfires.

Wyoming Wednesdays are held at the Information Center. “Remember, only you can prevent wildfires.”
