About the Event

Author Linda Betsinger McCann will be speaking on her book, "The Civilian Conservation Corps in North East Iowa." The CCC was a federal program to assist young men in supporting their families, and also to renew natural resources. Iowans know of the work done in State Parks, but in Iowa, over 75% of the projects were soil erosion, which consisted of terracing, dams, dikes, and planting tress. Linda has conversed with 16 men who who worked for the CCC and shares their memories.
