Transcript of Civilian Conservation Corps

The civilian conservation corps was a non-profit organization established in March 1933.
Its focus was to provide jobs for young men and war veterans, through conservation and development of natural resources, and beginning in May 1940, defense work on military reservations and forest protection.
Legacy of the CCC
Although the organization does not exist today, over 97,000 miles of fire roads were built, over 3 billion trees were planted and over 800 parks were built. We travel on these roads everyday, pass by thousands of trees on our way, and use these parks for child's play.
