Whitewater State Park CCC Camp program Feb. 11 (01/29/2012)
The programs of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal not only addressed the economic disaster of the Great Depression, but made lasting contributions to American society. Whitewater State Park would not be what it is today without the contributions of the Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress Administration.

On Saturday, February 11th, from 1-3pm, you can learn about Whitewater’s CCC and WPA camp and how the projects implemented by the young men in these camps continue to provide invaluable recreational opportunities and facilities at Whitewater State Park. Guest presenter and park volunteer, Judy Shepard, will present at the visitor center on the history of the CCC and WPA at the park. After the presentation, visitors will have the opportunity to participate in a guided snowshoe walk to tour some of the remaining CCC/WPA structures.

This program is offered free of charge and reservations are not required. All vehicles entering the state park must purchase a state park vehicle permit. Permits can be purchased at the visitor center for $5/daily or $25/annual. For more information, call 507-932-3007 ext 226 or email sara.grover@state.mn.us .
