The Civilian Conservation Corps in Minnesota has left a lasting legacy still seen today.

At the height of the great depression, a program took shape to provide work for unemployed young men that would teach them job skills, restore logged over forest, and take the concept of public parks from paper to reality. Although it lasted only 10 years, the boys of the CCC left a lasting legacy in Minnesota that can still be seen today.
