    Talking Smokey The 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 the card was 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 in 1943 who was visiting a fire tower in Northeastern Kentucky.If you have any other information about the history of this club feel free to post.
