Woodsy Owl joined twenty-eight children at the Norris City library Summer Reading program on Wednesday. "Woodsy" is an owl icon for the United States Forest Service, most famous for the motto "Give a hoot—don't pollute!" His current motto is "Lend a hand—care for the land!" Woodsy's target audience is children five to eight years of age, and he was designed to be seen as a mentor to children, providing them with information and advice to help them appreciate nature. Woodsy turns 50 this year. Woodsy was accompanied by Linda Hauser, a Shawnee National Forest Ranger, who talked to the group about camping safety, forest animals, and recycling.
