🎉 Happy birthday Franklin D. Roosevelt 🎉
Thank you for creating the Civilian Conservation Corps, commonly referred to as the CCC. The CCC consisted of hundreds of thousands of young men who worked on environmental projects during The Great Depression. These men helped build many of our park's trails, cabins and other facilities, while practicing forest management strategies and fighting forest fires.
🤝 Many of these structures and strategies are still used in New Jersey's state parks and forests today!
