         The Civilian Conservation Corps (or CCC) began as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal to assist the United States out of an economic depression, which ensued after the great stock market crash of 1929. Funded by the government, the CCC created jobs designed for young men aged 18-25 and focused upon the conservation and upkeep of the United States’ most prized natural resources including forests, wildlife, and soil. Although the CCC was disbanded in 1937, their legacy can still be seen today- several billion trees were planted, natural wildlife habitats and forests were improved, millions of acres of soil were saved due to erosion control methods set in place by the CCC.
