Join historian Beth Karpinski as she shares the story of the four CCC camps in and around Moab, which played a crucial role in shaping the region’s landscape and infrastructure, as well as controlling erosion in the Spanish Valley.
Discover how the CCC responded to seasonal flooding events and the devastating flood of 1932 by implementing erosion control measures along Mill and Pack creeks and throughout the Spanish Valley. Learn about the various techniques used, such as dams, furrows, trenches, plugs, rock structures, and tree planting, many of which are still visible on the landscape today.
Take this opportunity to enjoy a fascinating look into Moab’s past and appreciate the lasting legacy of the CCC in the area. This event is perfect for history buffs and those interested in the development of Southeastern Utah.
