Smokey Bear enjoying the honey and berries that are dispensed from his new automated dispensing tree. National Zoological Park staffers from the offices of Graphics and Exhibits and Facilities Management put together the "honey tree" in Smokey's exhibit area in the summer of 1984. The national symbol of forest-fire prevention turns forty this year. The Cooperative Forest Fire Prevention Program funded the construction.
