For those of you who don’t know, CCC stands for the Civilian Conservation Corps, a group started by FDR back in the 1930’s to help maintain our national parks and in turn create jobs. When I was much younger, I was hoping they would start up the CCC again but, unfortunately that didn’t happened.

So when I came across this article over at High Country News, I was pleasantly surprised. The article is entitled “How can we protect our National Parks? Here’s an idea: Maintenance issues abound, a new Civilian Conservation Corps could lend a hand” by Gundars Rudzitis. Oh, to be twenty something again!
