California Conservation Corps and Marin Conservation Corps Honor Civilian Conservation Corps

 

Three "CCC boys" were honored last Saturday as part of a 75th anniversary celebration for the Civilian Conservation Corps (original CCC), held at Mt. Tamalpais State Park in Marin County. Members of the California Conservation Corps and the Marin Conservation Corps (now Conservation Corps North Bay) joined together to help clean up the magnificent rock amphitheater built by the original CCC in the 1930s and is still in use today. Representatives from California State Parks presented a proclamation from Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, and the California Conservation Corps' (CCC) Jimmy Camp read a letter from CCC Director David Muraki.

Director David Muraki also published an op-ed about the original CCC in numerous California newspapers. To read David's op-ed, visit the Santa Monica Mirror website.
