Billy Badger

Billy Badger started storing all of his money at Badger Bank so it was in a safe place. Billy told his friends all about his new savings plan and now Billy and his friends all keep their money in a savings account. They want all of their friends to start saving with them so they started the Forest Friends Club. Billy hopes you will join! He is organizing fun ways to be part of the club. Have you seen Billy's coloring pages yet?

When Fiona Fox found out about saving money at Badger Bank, she knew it was a smart plan. But, joining the Forest Friends club...Fiona says that’s a no-brainer! Not only is Fiona’s money stored in a safe place, but also each month Badger Bank gives her up to $5 and a special prize just for putting more money in her account. Fiona knows clever when she sees it and joining the Forest Friends Club is clearly clever!

Oakley Owl

Oakley Owl

Oakley Owl has flown around the forest a lot and knows that money does not grow on trees. But, it does grow in banks! When Oakley heard about saving money at Badger Bank, Oakley knew that was the wise thing to do. Now Oakley's money will be safe all the time and it will “grow” by earning interest. Oakley is excited to help others make wise decisions about spending and saving their money. Oakley is keeping a list of links for you on the Forest Friends webpage!

Beau Bear

Beau Bear

Beau Bear joined the Forest Friends Club so he could keep his money safe all year, even when he is hibernating. Beau’s favorite part of the club is that his family can set-up automatic deposits all winter long, so his account continues to grow even when he can’t take the money in himself. When he can visit Badger Bank to make a deposit, he loves to take his bank full of coins and dump them into the machine. So fun!
