“Camp Waterloo – The Civilian Conservation Corps in Monore Couty” presented by Ron Stellhorn. Among the hardest hit by unemployment during the Great Depression were young men ages 18-24. At the same time, America’s soil and forest resources were dwindling. To deal with these crises, President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal administration created the Civilian Conservation Corps in 1933. Ron Stellhorn is a retired history teacher from the Waterloo District 5. The program will be held in the Monroe County History Museum’s Allscheid-Metzger Gallery located at 724 Elaine Dr., Waterloo, Illinois 62298
