Course description:
ENST 310 Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) Alternative Spring Break
From 1933 to 1942 more than 3 million men served in the CCC and dramatically changed the physical and political landscape of the United States. CCC workers planted billions of trees, developed parks and recreational opportunities and transformed farmland across the country. This course will examine the long lasting effect of the CCC program on modern environmentalism and in how we define conservation.
