How might the Civilian Conservation Corps have contributed to the environmental movement?

    The Civilian Conservation Corps was established as part of FDR’s New Deal. The program brought young men into direct contact with and service of the natural world. The group planted trees and maintained national parks, blazing trails and other chores. Undoubtably this not only had the direct environmental effects of their efforts but open the eyes of a large portion of the generation to the plight of nature in the face of industrialization. Many of the young men were eastern city dwellers who were shipped to the west to work on projects, this meant that they were encountering a whole new world that they may never had known otherwise.
