CCC Workers, Acadia National Park, 1934

Contributed by Acadia National Park

Description

Civilian Conservation Corps workers work on a diseased tree in Acadia National Park on Mount Desert Island. There were two camps on Mount Desert Island: one in Bar Harbor and the other in Southwest Harbor.

The program placed young men in state and national parks and other sites to help protect forests and create recreational opportunities.

Acadia National Park came into being on July 8, 1916 when President Woodrow Wilson established Sieur de Monts National Monument for its connection to Samuel de Champlain and the “topographic configuration, the geology, the fauna and flora of the island ... are also of great scientific interest”

In 1919, the name was changed to Lafayette National Park. In 1929, it became Acadia National Park.
