The CCC and the Arboretum
Sunday, July 30
1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Meet at Visitor Center, UW-Madison Arboretum
More than eighty years ago this summer, the Civilian Conservation Corps was planting trees and prairie species during the most severe drought year in recorded history. Watering went on around the clock. We will see some of the ecosystems they planted and visit the remaining camp buildings. Meet at the Visitor Center.
