Outdoor Adventure Center - Active Aging Adventures Brunch & Learn: Civilian Conservation Corps in Michigan

2024-04-04T13:00:00Z 2024-04-04T16:00:00Z Outdoor Adventure Center - Active Aging Adventures Brunch & Learn: Civilian Conservation Corps in Michigan

During this monthly series for active aging adults, participants will have opportunities to meet our on-site educators, listen to guest presenters and take part in various natural resource-themed activities. All programs begin at 9 a.m. and include pastries, coffee and tea upon entry. At 9:30 a.m., presentations will begin, so sit back and enjoy your snack during an exciting and informative program, then wrap up with time to explore the OAC exhibits.

Fee: $8 per person; preregistration required. Payment can be made for groups or individuals.

In the summer of 1933, thousands of young Michigan men ventured into northern Michigan forests for work and conservation. The Civilian Conservation Corps was one of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s major successes during the Great Depression. In April, join Outdoor Adventure Center educators as we explore how Michiganders contributed to the CCC, what the workers’ average day looked like and where we can still see their impact in our state. Guests will also receive a tree sapling to take home and plant at the end of this event.
