History, Lore and Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps

| No Comments
Thumbnail image for ccccover.jpg The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was founded in 1933 as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs to relieve the poverty and unemployment of the Depression. As today's economy enters difficult times, the history of these social policies is highly relevant. Author Marty Podskoch will discuss the history of the CCC camps in Connecticut at the Greenwich Library on Friday, May 30 at 11:00 AM in the Meeting Room.

CCC camps were established in many Connecticut towns, state parks and forests. Workers built trails, roads, campsites and dams; stocked fish; and maintained fire towers and telephone lines. Their legacy lives on as we enjoy the millions of trees they planted.

Marty Podskoch will present History, Lore and Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps on Friday, May 30 at 11:00 AM in the Greenwich Library Meeting Room. For more information, please contact Carl White at 203-622-7948.
