BISMARCK — The North Dakota Forest Service and USDA Forest Service Dakota Prairie Grasslands are partnering to spread fire prevention awareness with a “Flat Smokey” challenge.

Children and youth can download Flat Smokey from the Forest Service’s web page at or the Dakota Prairie Grasslands web page at

Through July 10, children can print Flat Smokey, color him, cut him out and then take a picture or video of Smokey engaged in a fire prevention activity. Children should post the photo or video on Facebook and tag the ND State Forest Service or Dakota Prairie Grasslands to receive Smokey swag.
