Welcome to CCC Legacy

Civilian Conservation Corps
Preserving America's Natural Resources

America was in the grip of the Great Depression when Franklin Delano Roosevelt was inaugurated in March of 1933.  More than twenty-five percent of the population was unemployed, hungry and without hope.  The New Deal programs instituted bold changes in the federal government that energized the economy and created an equilibrium that helped to bolster the needs of citizens.  
 Out of the economic chaos emerged the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).  The goal was two-fold:  conservation of our natural resources and the salvage of our young men.  The CCC is recognized as the single greatest conservation program in America and it served as a catalyst to develop the very tenets of modern conservation.  The work of America's young men dramatically changed the future and today we still enjoy a legacy of natural resource treasures that dot the American landscape  Camp Roosevelt - 1940

Note for our readers:  After much discussion and legal investigation, regarding the name of the CCC Worker Statue™ the decision has been made to make a public request reminding readers of the true name of this piece of art.  The current statue that was developed by NACCCA members in 1995 and is now so familiar to us, is named the CCC Worker Statue™.  

Out of respect for the Chapter #129 CCC alumni who started the program in 1995, please refrain from calling the statue "Iron Mike".  This is not correct. 

To learn more about the history of the statue program coordinated by NACCCA/CCC Legacy please go to Statue History
