    Default Smokey bear vs the squirrel club!

    Sure Smokey Bear is a icon in the world of fire prevention and education.

    Does anyone remember the ancient and honorable order of the squirrels.

    This was a squirrel club develop by the U.S.Forest service in the 1930's and given to childern who visited fire towers.

    The club card certifies that the visiter climbed the fire tower on a given date in the national forest.

    On back of the card it reads:

    The hardest nut the U.S.Forest and the state conservation departments have to crack is the problem of man-caused forest fires.

    Care with Fire in the Woods
    AS I WORK
    AS I WALK
    AS I RIDE
    AS I CAMP

    The one I have was issued to a family member who was visiting a fire tower in Northeastern Kentucky in 1943.If you have any other information about the history of this club feel free to post.
