Who were the young men called "CCC boys" and what is their legacy in the Great Lakes State?
Join us for a special commemoration of the 1933 creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps. We'll celebrate the work of the more than 102,000 "CCC boys" in Michigan. The day's highlights include the 1 p.m. rededication of the 1997 CCC Worker Statue, the first in the nation to memorialize the accomplishments of the CCC. Look here soon for a complete schedule of activities.
This event is free of charge, although a Michigan State Parks Recreation Passport is required for park entry. For more information, send us an e-mail or telephone (989) 348‑6178.
