Sierra Club California publishes a regular Desert Report. It is truly an impressive magazine, and the March 2020 issue had a wonderful article entitled, "Not To Be Forgotten: The Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps in Death Valley National Park." You can hunt the article down by using the link I have provided to the magazine, and then downloading a PDF version of the March 2020 issue.
I thought there were some good lessons to be learned from the article on the work that the CCC did in Death Valley. We do need to get the nation "back to work," correct? There is a lot to be done, right? Just as one example, we could try to get our nation out of "freefall," and start rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure. Or..... we could plant trees, like The Overstory suggests might be appropriate.
I would like to think that our nation is ready for a whole new approach to politics and the economy. I think the CCC is quite the model.
Time for a replay!
