Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home

Exhibit Overview

Smokey Bear and Woodsy Owl: Home Sweet Home, is a green-built, interactive traveling exhibit created by the Betty Brinn Children's Museum in collaboration with the US Forest Service.

The exhibit features two classic American icons that inspire children and families to discover and care for the natural resources that sustain our world - our home sweet home. Smokey Bear, Woodsy Owl and their forest friends share important messages as they lead visitors into pretend woodland and urban settings that encourage families to spend time together outdoors and teach young children to be active explorers and stewards of the land.

The exhibit's hands-on activities and related programming underscore the importance of protecting forest ecosystems and highlight ways to reduce, reuse and recycle valuable resources.

Target Audience: Educational activities are designed for children ages 2 – 8

Space Requirements: 2,000 - 2,500 square feet of exhibit space is required
