American Experience: Civilian Conservation Corps Series
Lectures curated around American Experience: Civilan Conservation Corps, a New Deal work program that combined conservation, renewal, awareness and appreciation of the nation's natural resources.
As part of the New Deal legislation proposed by US President Franklin D. Roosevelt (FDR), the CCC was designed to aid relief of the unemployment resulting from the Great Depression while implementing a general natural resource conservation program on national, state, county and municipal lands. President Roosevelt’s CCC put 3 million young men to work across America. Living in camps across all 48 states (and the provinces of Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands,) the men of 'the C’s’ created camping areas and hiking trails in State and National Parks, built roads, fought forest fires, constructed dams, and planted 2.3 billion trees — half of the trees ever planted in the U.S. — all for $1 a day.
