Latest Park Luncheon Focuses on Legacy of Conservation Corps

By Beacon Staff

The public is invited to join a pair of freelance writers and photographers who will share the story of the Civilian Conservation Corps in America’s parks, including Glacier National Park.

The Crown of the Continent Research Learning Center at Glacier National Park is hosting a free brown-bag lecture on Thursday, July 11 from noon to 1 p.m. at the Community Building in West Glacier.

Render and Helen Davis’s recently completed book, “Our Mark on This Land: A Guide to the Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps in America’s Parks,” culminates a decade of research in state and national archives and collections, visits to more than 100 parks across the country, and correspondence with noted experts on the history of the Civilian Conservation Corps. Join this brown-bag seminar to learn more about the Civilian Conservation Corps and its importance to Glacier National Park.
