Originally called the Emergency Conservation Work (ECW) Act, on March 9, 1933 President Franklin Delano Roosevelt called 73rd Congress into Emergency Session to hear and authorize his program.
It was designed to bring together what was considered wasted resources, young men and the land. These young men would work in National and State Parks to revitalize the forests and landscape that made up the parks.
