Civilian Conservation Corps, CCC, at Enfield Glen State Park, now Robert H. Treman State Park, Ithaca, NY in the Finger Lakes.

A young CCC worker poses at the camp at Enfield Glen State Park, now Robert H. Treman State Park.

The Friends of Robert H. Treman State Park offered this public presentation at Kendal of Ithaca, NY on March 30, 2014, by Josh Teeter, environmental educator for the Finger Lakes State Parks region. Mr. Teeter explains what CCC camps were in our area parks and what they accomplished. This is the first part of his talk, in episode 72 of Walk in the Park, a public access TV series in Ithaca, NY provided by Owl Gorge Productions. See more of our episodes of Walk in the Park. In this part, Josh takes us to Robert H. Treman, Watkins Glen, and Buttermilk Falls State Parks. In part 2 next week, we’ll go to Taughannock Falls and other state parks in the Finger Lakes region.
