The Civilian Conservation Corps(CCC) was a work relief program that gave millions of young men employment on environmental projects during the Great Depression. Considered by many to be one of the most successful of Roosevelt's New Deal programs. The CCC planted more than three billion trees and constructed trails and shelters in more that 800 parks nationwide during its nine years of existence. The CCC helped to shape the modern nation and state park systems we enjoy today. There is a great deal of information on these camps on the internet. Can you identify any of the men in these photos?
