Sat, March 07, 2015
Come and learn how President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's "Tree Army" helped lift America out of the Great Depression while leaving behind a legacy in Texas known as State Parks - including Fort Parker!
Putting young men to work across the nation, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) built state and national parks, and helped preserve our natural resources. This presentation will discuss the events leading up to the Great Depression, the role of the CCC in helping America defeat the greatest financial crisis in our nation's history, and how the CCC built Fort Parker State Park and many other parks in the Texas State Park System. Program starts at 8:00 p.m. at the open pavilion.
Bring a lawn chair as seating is limited. Held at the Open Pavilion in Fort Parker State Park. Accessible for the mobility impaired. This program is free with paid park entrance fee or a State Park Pass.
