The Story of the Civilian Conservation Corps
with Bill Marcum
One of the most popular programs in President Roosevelt’s New Deal package was the Civilian Conservation Corps. This program provided opportunity for employment for 3 million young American men during the Great Depression era when jobs were not available. These young men were assigned to work camps throughout America performing timber management, soil conservation and state and national park development project work. Many of the nation’s parks systems Americans visit and value today, such as Fort Clinch, are the result of the work performed by enrollees in the Civilian Conservation Corps.
This program was presented in Partnership with Story & Song.
