History of the Civilian Conservation Corps

Do you remember the CCC? Do you remember reading or hearing about the CCC? This is a piece of history that should not be forgotten. These hardy enrollies replanted forests after fires, fought forest fires, build roads and visitor centers, built miles of trails and miles of telephone lines, all while helping out the folks at home who were suffering under the Great Depression. In addition to the exhibit we have books to read and a take-home workbook for children. Come and see!
