As an avid historian and writer, Bob has created a multimedia exhibit and authored several books about the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC), most recently We Still Walk in Their Footprint: The Civilian Conservation Corps in Northern Arizona, 1933-1942 (Dog Ear Publishing, 2013). As such, Bob will present his research and findings regarding the CCC across Northern Arizona (to include Petrified Forest National Park) via a powerpoint presentation and lecture, with a book signing immediately following.

When: Wednesday June 5 2013, 10 am
