“A Project of Interest”: The Civilian Conservation Corps’ Washington Fields Project, 1937-1938 - Lecture by Mike Shamo

Oct 12, 2017, 7:00 pm

Although the Civilian Conservation Corps’ primary purpose was to provide work for many young single men, many of their projects fulfilled the needs of the communities they served. Residents in the small southern town of Washington sought the CCC’s assistance to protect their community’s most precious resource, the irrigation water for their fields.
