On November 19, The Civilian Conservation Corps' (CCC) lasting legacy on the National Park Service will be discussed at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park's final Monday Night Program for 2012. An initiative of the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration, the CCC provided employment, education and vocational training to thousands of out-of-work young men during the Great Depression. In gathering information for their guidebook, Our Mark on This Land: A Guide to the Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps in America's Parks, speakers Ren and Helen Davis explored, in depth, the CCC's effect on public lands restoration and preservation. Their findings, along with historical information, and examples of CCC workmanship at parks across the United States will be revealed during their discussion. Ren Davis, a native of Atlanta, received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Emory University and a Master's degree in Public Health from Tulane University After a long career in healthcare administration, he retired in 2009. Born in Lewistown, Pennsylvania, Helen Davis received her Bachelor of Science degree from The Ohio State University and a Master's degree from Georgia State University. She too retired in 2009 after a long career in education. The Davises have coauthored five guidebooks and more, than 100 magazine and newspaper articles.For more information, please call 770-427-4686 ext. 0 between 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
