UW–Madison Arboretum

In 1935, the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) set up its only camp on a university campus. More than 200 men served here until the camp closed in 1941. Learn about their extraordinary efforts to restore the ecosystems of Wisconsin and hike through the landscape they helped create. Free, no registration required. Meet at the Visitor Center.
