What happened after the CCC Left Upton State Forest?
Join Friends of Upton State Forest on Friday, May 20 for their annual potluck supper at the United Parish Vestry, 1 Church St, Upton.
The public is welcome to come to the potluck at 6 p.m. or just come at 7 p.m. for the free program.
Please RSVP for supper at 508-529-6610 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know if you are bringing a main dish or a dessert.
No need to RSVP for the program.
After supper, Ellen Arnold will speak about the post-CCC history of Upton State Forest and the reasons why the camp was saved. This story is as interesting as the CCC-era at the camp. The National Youth Administration, the Friends of Young Judaea, the Massachusetts State Guard, and the Division of Fisheries and Game all played a role in the forest’s post-CCC history. The power point program will describe their roles in the forest’s history, and the camp’s preservation.
