We Are Continuing America's Tradition Of Community Conservation

The Great Lakes Community Conservation Corps was conceived by an assembly of 25 CCC alumni at the 75th anniversary event of the Civilian Conservation Corps in 2008. The assembly addressed regional social and physical challenges in southeastern Wisconsin. Great Lakes CCC serves the Greater Milwaukee region of Kenosha, Walworth, Racine, Milwaukee, Waukesha, Washington and Ozaukee counties.
