The California Conservation Corps is the oldest and largest state conservation corps program in the nation.  But it didn't happen overnight.  From a small beginning, the CCC has grown to its current size with residential and nonresidential sites throughout the state.

Modeled after the original federal Civilian Conservation Corps created in 1933 by President Franklin Roosevelt, today's California program was signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown on July 7, 1976.  Governor Brown envisioned the program as "a combination Jesuit seminary, Israeli kibbutz and Marine Corps boot camp."
