The Civilian Conservation Corps in Arizona


by: Robert W. Audretsch, Sharon E. Hunt
In the 1930s, the United States was in the grip of the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl. Jobs were scarce, people were hungry, and the nation’s lands and forests were in decline. To combat these harsh realities, Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt established the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), a 1933–1942 program that put young unemployed men to work developing and conserving natural resources. The men lived together in camps where they received medical care, food, and education, and a portion of their salaries went home to support their families.

in pictures Petrified Forest: The Continuing Story


by: Lori and Carl Bowman
Petrified Forest National Park is a colorful land set in the arid country of northeastern Arizona. Spread beneath turquoise skies, the clay, sand and rock are aglow with shades of red and gold, barely hidden by the sparse cover of grass and spiny shrubs. For thousands of years, it has been home to various groups of people--some hunters, some farmers, but all tied to the vagaries of this harsh land.

Petrified Forest National Park, located in northeastern Arizona, was established in 1962 to protect multicolored stone trees, Indian petroglyphs, and portions of the Painted Desert.
