OhioHealth UpBEAT History Group: Civilian Conservation Corps

June 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Employing nearly 3 million young men, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) played a critical role in FDR’s strategy to conserve natural resources and raised public awareness of the outdoors and the importance of natural resource preservation. Across the nation, the CCC planted nearly 3 billion trees, built campgrounds and roads, preserved historic sites, and fought tree-killing insects. The CCC’s impact on conservation was considered by historians as the most successful of the New Deal programs. Join us virtually, or in-person (RSVP required to attend in-person), to learn more about the CCC. Presented by: Kevin Oldenburg, National Park Ranger at the Roosevelt-Vanderbilt NHS in Hyde Park. UpBEAT (Be Educated and Active Together) is a program for those aged 55 years and over. Membership is free. To learn how you can join us virtually (by phone or technology device) or RSVP for attending the program in-person (RSVP taken on first come, first serve basis as space is limited), contact Caitlin Bond, UpBEAT Program Coordinator by phone at 740-566-4680 or e-mail at Caitlin.Bond@ohiohealth.com.
