This Saturday, commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Civilian Conservation Corps‘ work at Mount San Jacinto State Park in a day-long celebration including guest speakers, displays of historic architecture and stonework, a spike-camp demonstration, and rare film footage of the CCC crews at work in the forest.

The night will conclude with a campfire tribute to the Corps, complete with hot chocolate and cider.

The activities begin at the State Park at 10AM in Idyllwild. If you can, try to snag a camp site and tackle one of the local peaks to make a full weekend out of it!
