Smokey the Bear Visits the Falls

Some Texoma children are a little more aware of how they can prevent wildfires. The Rolling Plains chapter of Texas Master Naturalist hosted A Morning with Smokey the Bear Saturday.

Kids learned about fire safety and the difference between good and bad fires. Officials with the Texas Forest Service stress more than 95 percent of wildfires  are caused by carelessness.

McGruff the Crime Dog and members of the Wichita Falls Fire Department were also on hand.

The event was held at the River Bend Nature Center on 3rd St.
