During the 1930s, the Great Depression gripped the nation in a stranglehold of unemployment and despair. The creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps(CCC)was a blessing - it put young men to work and helped save our natural resources. From 1933 to 1942, about 3 million "CCC boys" worked in our parks, forests and other public lands all across the nation.
Here in Washington, the CCC helped create one of the finest state park systems in the country. Today, these CCC-built facilities are enjoyed by tens of people each year.
This video relates the story of the CCC in Washington State Parks- "The Best Time of My Life"
