Woodsy Owl, the Forest Service’s anti-pollution mascot.

He was created in time for the first Earth Day in 1970, but wasn’t formally introduced until September 15, 1971. Congress passed legislation protecting Woodsy’s image and establishing his licensing requirements in 1974. Funds from licensing agreements went to promoting education about conservation and fighting pollution.
