1933 - 1941The Civilian Conservation Corps was organized by President Franklin Roosevelt during the Great Depression. The program provided useful employment for nearly three million young men ages 17 to 26 and served to enhance and preserve our nation's natural resources. The Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge was fortunate to have hosted three CCC companies. Camp 812 - Buffalo Springs; Camp 859 - Panther Creek; and Camp 870 - Elm Island.
