Wildfire Awareness

Selah Cub Scout Pack 276 is co-hosting an educational event with the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on Sunday April 17th, 2016 at the Ahtanum State Forest.

Come see Smokey Bear, learn about wildfire prevention, and do some community service they helps keep the area open to the public.

Everyone is welcome!

Join DNR staff, other volunteers, and Smokey Bear to learn about wildfire awareness and care for DNR’s Ahtanum Campground. Volunteers will be cleaning fire pits and doing general maintenance at the campground, as well as learning tips for extinguishing a campfire. Families, youth groups, and children welcome, but must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.  – Click for official page!
