America was in the grip of the Great Depression when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was inaugurated in March of 1933. More than twenty-five percent of the population was unemployed, hungry and without hope. The New Deal Programs instituted bold changes in the federal government that energized the economy and created an equilibrium that helped to bolster the needs of citizens.
Out of the economic chaos emerged the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The goal was two-fold. conservation of our natural resources and the salvage of our young men. The CCC is recognized as the single greatest conservation program in American and it served as a catalyst to develop the very tenets of modern conservation. The word of America’s young men dramatically changed the future and today we still enjoy a legacy of natural resource treasurers that dot the American landscape.
