CCC Recognition Day

For those of you coming out to the CCC Recognition Day on March 31 from 9-5 at the Red Hills Visitor Center at Saguaro National Park West, the Pico de Gallo restaurant will be catering the event. They will be serving carne asada, burritos, and fruit cups. 

The park has waived the park entrance fee for people attending the event.

The Southwest Conservation Corps will be there along with representatives from Colossal Cave Mountain Park and the Chiricachua National Monument. Mike Smith is coming down from Phoenix and Bob Audretsch is traveling from Flagstaff to talk about the Grand Canyon and Northern Arizona. Phil Brown will talk about the CCC in Saguaro National Park, and Sharon Hunt will talk about the CCC in St. David and Patagonia. 

We'll be showing videos on the CCC and displaying photos from that time period. Between their talks, historians will be available to answer questions about the CCC throughout the country.
Several CCC enrollees and families have told us that they plan to attend. We can't wait to recognize them!

Contact Sharon Hunt at for more information.
