Author and historian Marty Podskoch will give a visual presentation of his new book on the History, Lore & Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps camps in Connecticut.
The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) began on March 31, 1933 under President Roosevelt’s “New Deal” to relieve the poverty and unemployment of the Depression. Camps were set up in many Connecticut towns, state parks & forests. Workers built trails, roads, campsites, & dams, stocked fish, did insect control, built & maintained fire towers & telephone lines, fought fires, & planted millions of trees. The CCC disbanded in 1942 due to the need for men in WW II.
Marty Podskoch will have all of his books available after the presentation for sale and signing.
