Join us on Zoom for a virtual presentation about past and present infrastructure projects at Pope Farm Conservancy. Historian Bob Moore will be joining us to talk about the Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC) soil erosion dam site that was built on the Pope Farm property in the 1930s. We’ll learn about the men and boys ("The Soil Soldiers") who were housed at the CCC camp in Mt. Horeb. Bob will also talk about the importance of the CCC, especially in terms of its immediate impact to this area during the Depression years. Later on, Jim Bolitho will be available to answer questions about the Erosion Mitigation Project at the Ravine in the fall of 2021. Find out why the trail on the east side of the ravine was relocated.
