Handiwork of the Civilian Conservation Corps


Driving along the Bajada Loop in Saguaro National Park is definitely one of many highlights at the park. In addition to numerous hikes of varying length and difficulty, there are two picnic areas ... plus one more a short distance away. The Ez-Kim-In-Zim Picnic Area was one of our favorites. The covered picnic tables were built in the park's Tucson Mountain District by the men of the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s.

Have you seen some of the work of the CCC as you've traveled in the US?

In my opinion, the handiwork of the Civilian Conservation Corps, young men who received $1.00 per day plus living expenses, can only be described as amazing. The program began in 1933 and was in operation for about 10 years. Many of their projects were done in areas that were, or have since become, national parks. This picnic table at Saguaro National Park was one example of the improvements that have stood the test of time in the Tucson, Arizona park.

Where have you seen some of the work of the CCC?
