November 4, 2023 - CCC and the Virginia State Parks - In 1933, 13.6 million people were unemployed in the United States. In the face of this emergency, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt created a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Roosevelt intended to put unemployed youth to work in forests, parks and range lands across the country. They created 800 state parks across America including six in Virginia. The CCC also helped develop what would become Pocahontas State Park and the National Park Service's Prince William Forest Park. Join us for an historical overview of the CCC and Virginia State Parks.
