Inscription.  The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) employed young men in the 1930s during the Great Depression. Across the country, CCC crews built park buildings, planted billions of trees, constructed roads, and fought wildfires. The program provided economic relief and revived people's interest in their natural heritage.
