Program Description

Program Details

Linda McCann, author and historical researcher, will talk about the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in Iowa.

The CCC was a federal program that assisted young men in supporting their families during the Depression years (1933 to 1942). Most Iowans know about the State Park work done in Iowa, but there was so much more, including projects in Ames. Linda has spoken with 21 men who were in the CCC and shared their experiences and memories.
