Wildfire Awareness Week: Ahtanum Campground Fire Pit Clean-out - April 29th 2012
 
Wildfire Awareness Week:
Ahtanum Campground Campfire Pit Clean-out
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Eastern Washington Adventures

On Sunday April 29th, 2012 the Department of Natural Resources staff and volunteers met up at the Ahtanum State Forest for a campfire pit clean out event in the Ahtanum Campground in celebration of Wildfire Awareness Week. The group worked together to clean out campfire pits to reduce the risk of wildfire due to escaped recreational fires. Smokey Bear was on site to support the groups efforts. The kids got to check out a DNR firetruck and everyone received some cool Smokey Bear promotional items.
