History Fact: During The Great Depression the Civilian Conservation Corps built this area for use as restaurant and pavilion areas for workers. From 1938-1941 the CCC Camp provided jobs and training to southerners to assist with local living conditions and area improvements. The CCC planted trees , built roads, built picnic tables and piers as well as other structures. #historynerd #homeschooling #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #jacksoncounty #mississippihistory #familylearning #worldschooling

Prior to enlisting in the Army, my father-in-law was in the CCC. We just came across his cook book in a box of his personal items. #ccc #civilianconservationcorps
The monument to the Civilian Conservation Corps. men who built the Giant City Lodge and helped make the state parks what they are today. #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #giantcitylodge #giantcitystatepark #giantcity #statue #monument #men #statepark
Aiken State Park was developed by the federally funded Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the Great Depression. Around one third of the CCC companies in South Carolina were composed of African-American men, and one these units (Company 4470) developed Aiken State Park. These artesian wells are just one of the beautiful structures they developed. Drinkable fresh water bubbles out from the wells 24/7 from the parks many underground springs. . . . #aiken #aikensc #aikenstatepark #artesian #artesianwells #africanamericanhistory #civilianconservationcorps #greatdepression #nature #hiking #southcarolinastateparks #scstateparks #southcarolina #naturephotography #historyphotography #blackwaterriver #canoeing #canoeingadventures #stateparktour
In honor of MLB playoff season being in full swing, here’s a throwback for you all. Check out this vintage baseball gear used by a Civilian Conservation Corps worker in the 30’s! #throwbackthursday #tbt #civilianconservationcorps #baseball #ccc #oregonforestry #mlbplayoffs

A month ago atop Brian Head Peak in Utah. The clouds that particular day were amazing and for about an hour or so @hikelemmon and I shared the peak with a few chirping Marmots and a shy Pika. A recommended side trip if you're ever visiting Cedar Breaks. #brianheadpeak #brianhead #utah #brianheadlookout #dixienationalforest #markaguntplateau #clouds #sky #lookout #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #peak #atthetop #amazingsky #bluesky #cloudy

Hopefully you-know-who won’t ruin the #civilianconservationcorps legacy as well as #franklindroosevelt legacy seeing how he has NO respect for our state and national wildlife. #burneyfalls #stateforeststatepark #californiatravel #californiatrips #mcarthurburneyfallsstatepark
In the 1930s one of my grandfathers joined the public works program Civilian Conservation Corps and helped to build Giant City State Park in Southern Illinois. We’ve been enjoying the park ever since! #civilianconservationcorps #giantcitystatepark

Today's #throwbackthursday takes us up to Longhorn Cavern State Park back around 1935. When the #civilianconservationcorps was building the park, they had to haul out 2.5 tons of trash, bat guano, and silt out of the cavern mostly using hand tools to allow for tours. #txparksccc #txstateparks #caves #1930s #texashistory #lifesbetteroutside #lifesalsobetterunderground

♥️♥️♥️ Blanchard/Mithchel's Grist Mill at Mirror Lake, thank you Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) for saving at least part of this gem. That's a program we should bring back. #arkansashistory #arkansas #civilianconservationcorps

Deep in Cascade Canyon is a log cabin (originally a barn) built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1935. It isn’t totally visible from the main trail, but we saw the roof peeking though the trees when we first passed it. It’s a beautiful structure and well-maintained by NPS. I imagine many a park ranger working long days in the backcountry coming here to rest before heading back to rejoin civilization. Idyllic, isn’t it?
Seat made out of a tree trunk. #civilianconservationcorps working hard so many years ago.

This is the only CCC statue in New York. It’s located near the Lower Falls in Letchworth State Park. Slide right for info about the camp. The G stone is where a corner of Barracks G was - see map. . . . #letchworthstatepark #nystateparks #civilianconservationcorps #civilianconservationcorpsstatue #civilianconservationcorpscamp #wyomingcountyny #nyhistory #wnyhistory #wny #newyorkstateparks
This has put a crazy idea in my mind - now I want to visit all 73 statues dedicated to the CCC workers. #ccc #ccclegacy #civilianconservationcorps
Walking among the giants is truly amazing but to walk the trail to the ocean, well that is...I don't know, pretty cool. Thanks #civilianconservationcorps
In one of our Nation’s most difficult periods, a group of men whose numbers ranked over three million left their homes and began an adventure across our great land. They were poor, mostly uneducated and many were hungry. Yet, what they didn’t lack was a capacity for hard work. These men re-shaped the landscape of our country. By planting nearly three billion trees, reducing a growing soil erosion problem and building structures in our state and national parks, they would allow Americans to enjoy our country’s natural resources for generations to come. They were the men of the Civilian Conservation Corps. 🇺🇸
A #wayback #waterfallwednesday from July 22, 2014, at Ricketts Glen State Park, Pennsylvania. Like so many Insta-popular places, Ricketts Glen swarms with visitors, but the twin stream valleys dropping dramatically off the Allegheny Front, and the lovely stonework trails built by the Civilian Conservation Corps, are worth a visit any chance you get. #civilianconservationcorps #ccc #hike #hiking #hikingpa #hikingtrail #nature #pa #pennsylvania #rickettsglen #stateparks #stonework #summer #trail #waterfall #waterfalls
Took a day trip to one of my favorite @vastateparks this past weekend: Pocahontas State Park just outside of Richmond. This park was built and planted by the Civilian Conservation Corps. What an astounding program, one I truly believe we need to reopen. Their work is still noticeable and gorgeous at Pocahontas and other state parks. #vastateparks #virginia #pocahontasstatepark #ccc #civilianconservationcorps
Passed through Mary’s Rock Tunnel driving into #ShenandoahNationalPark last weekend and had to get a picture. This tunnel was constructed in 1932 and is the only vehicular tunnel into the park. #Sony #a6000 #a6000sony #a6000photography #Virginia #SkylineDrive #BlueRidgeMountains #CivilianConservationCorps

The Tripadvisor reviews were accurate... ‘rustic with incredible mountain views’. Built in 1933, this shelter amazingly survived the August 2017 Nash fire with trees burning a mere ten feet from the shelter. #hiking #backpacking #pct #civilianconservationcorps #sectionhiking #threesisterswilderness #snowcapinn #baconcheeseburger
Let's pose a bit!! #civilianconservationcorps
Believe it or not this wasn’t taken with my Canon Rebel #trail25 . An old abandoned building, hidden in the trees of Riverside State Park. The building is part of a larger complex of the CCC camps, enacted by the new deal. . . . #sevenmile #spokanedoesntsuck #graffiti #abandoned #abandonedplaces #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #camera #backhome #easternwashington #spokane #graffitiart #spokanetrails #ninemilefalls #artinart #art #washington #pnw #pacificnorthwest #pacific #pacificnorthwestisbest #forest #canon #canonrebel #canoncamera #rebelxt #canonrebelxt #canonphotography #pacificnorthwestwonderland

"Iron Mike" statue in Roosevelt Park Erected in 2003 near the end of Lafayette Ave, the statue was dedicated in recognition to all workers of the Civilian Conservation Corps from 1933-42. Mike was designed to depict a typical CCC worker, with a double bit axe at his side. #Edison #EdisonNJ #MenloPark #MenloParkNJ #NewJersey #CentralJersey #MiddlesexCounty #732 #RooseveltPark #CivilianConservationCorps
San Sevaine Lookout named after the Sainsevain Brothers, Pierre “Don Pedro” Sainsevain (November 20, 1818 – October 4, 1904) & Jean Louis Sainsevain (1817–1889). . It was built for the USFS by the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1934 but destroyed by the 1936 Etiwanda fire. Black and white photo is from John Robinson archives.

Had an amazing experience traversing the 96 miles of "The Whites" in New Hampshire. Temperatures ranged from 25F to 91F and many consider this to be the most technical and difficult part of the AT! 298.3 miles left on this 2190.9 mile journey. #appalachiantrail #hikeformentalhealth #thewhites #civilianconservationcorps #ramblinman

Day 4 - Exploring our Guivanah-Malibu Campground with my Aunt Carol, which was built in the 1930s by Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and many of the structures are still around and being used. Pics 1 & 2 - Front & back of Amphitheater built by CCC. Pic 3 - huge tree white & brown mushrooms; does anyone have any idea of what kind it is? PIc 4 - River view of structure built by CCC that we are using daily to enjoy the river. #ccc #civilianconservationcorps #loganriver #popcamper #loganvalley #popupcamping #cachenationalforest #guivanah -Malibu #guivanah #guivanah -Malibucampground #usforestservice #bureauoflandmanagement
