Without You

Without You

“During the time of the CCC, volunteers planted nearly 3 billion trees to help reforest America, constructed more than 800 parks nationwide and upgraded most state parks, updated forest fire fighting methods, and built a network of service buildings and public roadways in remote areas.”       —Wikipedia

Without the Civilian Conservation Corps (1933-1942) Gooseberry Falls State Park would not exist.  A similar program certainly could have helped us through our last recession and improved our currently deteriorating infrastructure.  Our current Congress is too busy raising money for reelection to enact solutions to our country’s problems.
