The Civilian Conservation Corps was a popular New Deal program that put young men to work on public lands. The "CCC boys" fought fires, planted trees and improved the landscape. Many of our current parks and forests are their legacy. Through interviews and rare footage, this program tells the story of the CCC in Oregon.
