Greetings from Lake Brownwood State Park! 🌵 I had to resort to sewing projects this week. I was doing too much knitting so my body let me know with some new aches and pains in my right hand. It seems like it is almost healed so I can get back to my favorite activity soon! 🎉 The jar sleeve pictured is made out of reclaimed t-shirts. It was originally just a test swatch for a dress I made. It was also the perfect size for a wide mouth jar sleeve. 🌵 The jar sleeve photo was taken at the bottom of the CCC Grand Stairway on the Lakeside Trail. Swipe for a glimpse of this amazing stairway. 🌅 #meanderingstitcher #makersofinstagram #makersgonnamake #handsewn #handmade #sustainablefashion #fashionrevolutionweek #fashionrevolution #lakebrownwoodstatepark #texasstateparks #stonestairway #civilianconservationcorps #getoutside #findyouradventure #selfcare #reclaimedfabric #jarsleeve #jarcozy

#MoroRock at #SequoiaNationalPark in #California ,#UnitedStates - Moro Rock is a granite dome rock formation. It is located in the center of the park, at the head of Moro Creek, between #GiantForest  and #CrescentMeadow . A stairway, designed by the #NationalParkService  and built in the 1930s by the #CivilianConservationCorps , is cut into and poured onto the rock, so that visitors can hike to the top. The view from the rock encompasses much of the Park, including the #GreatWesternDivide . #Wiki #hike #NationalPark #Nature

Came upon this exceptional pavilion that was part of FDR’s #civilianconservationcorps projects. It stands proudly in the forest along one of the nature trails at Caddo Lake State Park in East Texas
Congratulations to Mr. Jay Scassellati (soon to be 98 years young) on the 80th anniversary of joining the C.C.C. (Civilian Conservation Corps) on April 14, 1938! We salute you and we are honored that you chose to wear our Hank Player C.C.C. tee on your special day! #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #civilianconservationcorp #hankplayer #hankplayerusa #usforestservice #nationalparks #earthday
This is Juniper Springs, you may be sick of seeing photos of it, if you follow us😂. I want to talk about the CCC for a minute (Civilian Conservation Corps). The mill (and park) at the bottom of the photo and in the 2nd and 3rd photo was built by the CCC. . . If you like trees, the national and state park system, and what remains of work ethic, you can probably attribute that to the CCC. . . The CCC was founded in 1933 by Franklin D. Roosevelt as part of the "New Deal". It employed more then 3 million young men during the Great Depression. Instead of handouts or turning to crime, they were given purpose, food, lodging and education ($30 a month $25 had to be sent home to family). America is still receiving the benefits of the CCC nearly 100 years later! . . The program was in place for 9 years before ending at the start of WW2. They built bridges, roads, national parks, state parks, fought fires and reforested 3.5 billion trees from fires and clear cutting(over 1/2 of the reforestation to date). It was the largest peacetime mobilization of men in history. . . So yeah, we think the CCC has an amazing legacy! We will probably continue to mention it as we travel further, so much more can be said... Them Roosevelt's really hooked up our National Parks🌲🏞🌄🌳💪😎

CCC Civilian Conservation Corps The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was a work relief program that gave millions of young men employment on environmental projects during the Great Depression. Considered by many to be one of the most successful of Roosevelt’s New Deal programs, the CCC planted more than three billion trees and constructed trails and shelters in more than 800 parks nationwide during its nine years of existence. The CCC helped to shape the modern national and state park systems we enjoy today. #civilianconservationcorps #franklinrooseveltstatepark #triumph #triumphexplorer #georgia #dirtroad #dualsport #nelsonrigg #camperbeast1 #camping
We are a musical family but also a nature loving family! Yesterday evening was spent #hiking with family on old #ccc trail built by the #civilianconservationcorps at #Buescherstatepark . If you want to view more of our nature experiences with music, here is one of my personal favorites videos I made while in #colorado (copy and paste link). https://youtu.be/L88OiHH62DY

In the nine years the CCC operated, an estimated three million men aged 17-28 were able to find work, and an estimated three billion trees were planted across the country. • 🌴🌳🌲🌴🌳🌲 • Congress voted to close The immensely popular program in 1942, when the draft and WWII decreased the need for jobs relief. #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #conservation #fdr #newdeal #jobs #jobsprogram #1930s #1940s #greatdepression #ww2history #ww2 #wwii #jobprogram #roosevelt #reforestation #onthisday #todayinhistory #historicalfacts #factoftheday #dailykos #april10 #1933
100th birthday party for my father's aunt today. A Fix Family reunion of his 1st and my 2nd cousins. Kind of weird as I dont know them but as he ages, his past becomes more important for him to tell his story and me to listen for my kids. And more personal to me, the club where the party was held was an exploration into my grandfather's military training grounds. These pictures are from 1933, Troop K, 121st Cavalry, Manlius NY. Truman's New Deal has just been issued to help with Relief, Reform and Recovery from the Great Depression. Bernard Fix was a Civilian Conservation Corps man but the National Guard was paying more. Guys from this Cavalry chased Poncho Villa over the Rio Grande into Mexico in 1916. They were sent by Truman into WW1 with single shot guns and bayonettes on horseback. They paraded their animals in NYC upon return. These horseman trained with broomsticks on what is now a golf course when thier S&W's were collected and sent off to Europe frontlines. As the war machine heated up, they got word they'd need to transform from a Cavalry into an anti-tank unit to fight Hitler in WW2. And to think it can be a tough day when my Wi-Fi is lagging. Perspectives! Reflection! A glass raised high to this Grandfather I never met. #civilianconservationcorps #greatdepression

Smoky Mountains Hiking Club Cabin. 1934. It was difficult to choose just one W. Alan Youngblood drawing from our digital collection. Youngblood was an enrollee at Civilian Conservation Corps Camp NP-8 in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. He made a series of pencil on newsprint drawings illustrating the area and progress being made around Greenbriar. This cabin still stands. #smokymountainhikingclub #gsmnp #civilianconservationcorps #pencildrawing

April 5, 1933, President Franklin D. Roosevelt established the CCC (#CivilianConservationCorps ) with an executive order. Once it got rolling, the CCC employed hundreds of thousands of young men on projects such as the stone wall lining the rim in Grand Canyon National Park.

Talk about a #TBT ! On this day, April 5, 1933, then president #FDR created the #CivilianConservationCorps . Here in #VT there were crews all over—from Mtn Mansfield to Groton State Forest to the Upper Valley. The #CCC is what modern #youthcorps programs like #VYCC are modeled on.
The development of park facilities has changed through the years. This photo was take in the 1930s when the visitor center was newly built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. How has it changed since then? #history #civilianconservationcorps #ccc #visitorcenter #tbt #windcavenationalpark #historic #facilities #windcavenps

Happy April Fool's Day!! Here's a cheeky April Fools front page from The Weekly Newsense from 1938. The Weekly Newsense was a publication of the Civilian Conservation Corps - Indian Division.

On this day in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt founded the Civilian Conservation Corps to create jobs amidst the Great Depression - and in Iowa, it led to the creation of some of our state park's most beautiful structures! #IowaDNR #IowaStateParks #IowaHistory #CivilianConservationCorps #GreatDepression #History #Architecture Image: CCC workers building the iconic stone bridge at Ledges State Park
#OnThisDay 85 years ago in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt established the #CivilianConservationCorps . #FDR , who had volunteered with @BoyScoutsGNYC , said that he “took a leaf out of the notebook of Scouting” in creating the #CCC and “model[ed] it to a large extent after Scouting.” FDR considered the CCC’s success to be “a pretty fine tribute to what Scouting has done throughout the country.” By numbering our Crew to honor the CCC boys from its Fourth Corps Area (which included #Tennessee ), we hope to pay a reciprocal tribute to what the CCC did in #EastTennessee and throughout the country. ⚜️ #Knoxville #EastTNScouts #SR6Venturing #SRVenturing #Venturing #Venturers #Scouting #Scouts #iScout #CCClegacy
#OTD in 1933, the Civilian Conservation Corps (the #CCC ) was founded, giving unemployed men and youths jobs building the nation's infrastructure and national parks, and working to conserve forests and wildlife across the country. By Sept. 1935, there were nearly 500,000 men serving in the CCC. Did any of your ancestors serve in the CCC? #History #ancestry #Genealogy #familyhistory #USHistory #civilianconservationcorps

The grand staircase leading and out of the Longhorn Cavern was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.
The Civilian Conservation Corps. In my opinion, one of the greatest projects ever undertaken for the benefit of THE PEOPLE. Not only did it provide countless jobs for the unemployed during the Great Depression, but it more importantly made the wilderness more accessible to the public and engendered a love of the great outdoors. Many thanks to the people who took part in this wonderful program. #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #thegreatoutdoors

Wow! This little monument packs a punch! A sky island it not only contains animals and plants from 4 ecosystems, but also a huge amount of history. The park is named after the Chiricahua Apache who first inhabited the area, followed by ranchers and the indelible mark of the CCC. #FindYourPark #optoutside #skyisland #pinnacles #apache #civilianconservationcorps #saveourparks #itsallaboutthejourney
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday is the Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s annual Meeting for partnerships and communities, in the Mid Atlantic Region. Today staff and volunteers gathered to say goodbye to an old friend. The last original shelter along the Appalachian Trail will be dismantled. . The original shelters were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps #nationalservice program c. 1936. The shelter will be transported to Cowans gap State Park, PA and then reassembled there. #conservation #heritage #appalachiantrail #trailtowns #civilianconservationcorps #livinghistory #franklincountypa

It was just going to be a walk. Then it was going to be a trip to the dog park. 20 minutes later, we’re all running through a creek in the #CivilianConservationCorps designed #VirginiaKendallStateParkHistoricDistrict in the #CuyahogaValleyNationalPark This isn’t San Diego.

There is no way possible to spotlight every project or recount the millions of man hours worked by enrollees of the program. We have only just scratched the surface. #exploringalabama #civilianconservationcorps #CCCinAlabama #alabamathebeautiful
