Civilian Conservation Corps Recognition Day 2012

The CCC made a huge contribution to the state of Arizona, working on soil erosion control, road improvement, and tourist attraction projects. For the past two years, the CCC Recognition Day has served as a day to recognize the contributions of the CCC to the history of the state and to share information about these contributions with the general public.

In 2012, this event will be held at Saguaro National Park West at 2700 N. Kinney Road on March 31 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. At this event, CCC historians will be on hand to answer questions and share history; photos, oral histories, camp newspapers, rosters, documents, artifacts, and books will be available for viewing; authors will speak about their CCC; movies and TV shows about the history of the CCC will be shown; and tours of the CCC Camp SP-6-A site will be given. This event has been designated an Arizona Centennial Legacy Project.

For more information on this event, contact Sharon E. Hunt at or Philip Brown at
