The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was established in March 1933, during the first 100 days of President Franklin Roosevelt's administration. The CCC met two important Roosevelt goals: preserving the environment and providing sorely needed financial relief. The CCC was initially popular; by 1935 employing a half -a-million men in 2,500 work camps, primarily in the West. As World War II approached, enrollment declined and the CCC officially disbanded in 1942. CCC work included massive reforestation projects, as well as erosion control, wildlife protection, and projects that developed the infrastructure of the National Parks Service.
