History of The Civilian Conservation Corps

Tuesday September 10, 2019
6:30 PM


Author and historian Marty Podskoch will give a Power Point presentation on the History, Lore & Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps camps in Connecticut.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) began on March 31, 1933 under President Roosevelt New DealĀ  to relieve the poverty and unemployment of the Depression. Camps were set up in many Connecticut towns, state parks & forests. Workers built trails, roads, campsites, & dams, stocked fish, built & maintained fire tower observer cabins & telephone lines, fought fires, & planted millions of trees. The CCC disbanded in 1942 due to the need for men in WW II.
