      Forest Conservation: The Legacy of the CCC in Wisconsin

      During the Great Depression, Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) work camps sprang up in all 48 states and by the end of 1933 Wisconsin had 17 camps with 3,400 boys and young men enrolled. Glendale residents James and Scott Henderson, father and son authors, will provide an overview of the CCC in Wisconsin including camps in the Milwaukee area. They will discuss the operation of Camp Tomahawk to illustrate how these camps carried out their forest conservation mission.
