Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Museum

In an effort to "put Americans back to work" during the Great Depression, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) enrolled more than 100,000 young Michigan men to perform a variety of conservation and reforestation projects. Between 1933 and 1942, the Michigan CCC planted 484 million trees, spent 140,000 days fighting forest fires and constructed 7,000 miles of truck trails, 504 bridges and 222 buildings. Their accomplishments also revitalized the Michigan state park system, helping to establish Isle Royale National Park and improve campgrounds in Michigan's national forests. This museum is located in Roscommon, Michigan.
