Join the Conifer Historical Society on Sunday, January 8th, when presenter Sally White will provide an overview of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in Colorado in the context of the national program, and focus on the role of the CCC in developing Colorado's national and municipal park systems across the Front Range.

The premier CCC project in Colorado--and perhaps the nation--is Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Denver Mountain Parks maintains the best-preserved CCC camp in Colorado, and one of few left in the U.S., at Morrison, where CCC alumni met from 1980 until 2006. Selected alumni stories and experiences of CCC enrollees will enhance the presentation.

Sally White has worked as a historical researcher and writer since 1996, with emphasis on the Morrison area, central Jeffco, and Denver Mountain Parks. She has been involved with CCC alumni (Chapter 7) since 1996. She is co-author of the 2013 book Denver Mountain Parks: 100 Years of the Magnificent Dream.

Programs begin at 1:00 PM at the Little White Schoolhouse, on Barkley Road. Advance tickets are $8 for members and $10 for guests. Proceeds benefit the Little White Schoolhouse. Reserve and purchase your tickets at ConiferHistoricalSociety.org, or call 303-396-5975.

As we live about 700 miles away, we are not able to attend this presentation by Sally White. I only hope that she gives much credit to George W. Cranmer, the head of Denver's Parks and Recreation division when Denver bought Red Rocks to be developed into the unique site it now is.

Too bad you cannot attend, Cabinguy! Our current exhibit has a lot of information on Cranmer and others who were vital to the creation of the parks system!

We're looking forward to the talk on the Civilian Conservation Corps! It's amazing what the CCC accomplished at Red Rocks, Mt. Evans, and other local projects of the 1930s and 1940s. Hikers and history buffs will love it! See you at 1:00 pm on Sunday, Jan 8th.

In addition, our free exhibit, The History of Denver Mountain Parks (from Conifer to Winter Park) continues on Saturdays from 10:00 to 2:00 through February.
