CCC today

The CCC only lasted 9 years (1933-1942), but made a large impact. If the CCC was around today then we would be having them help fight water pollution by raising awareness to the problem, filtering the water to clear away pollutants, cleaning up litter from on the beach, protesting against large scale pollution, and helping save animals after oil spills.

Why was the CCC created?

To help improve the environment for future generation, and to help with pressing issues in nature.
