The Civilian Conservation Corps was a federal program to assist young men in supporting their families, and also to renew our natural resources. Most of the Iowa State Parks had work done in them by the CCC. There were 18 dams built in parks to create a lake. But, in Iowa, 75% of the camps worked on soil erosion projects. They built terraces, dams, and helped with drought control. They also planted trees to reforest the State. For her book, Linda was able to speak with men who had worked in the CCC, and they shared their memories with her.

Local historian Kathy Wilson presents "Death Comes for Us All," a look at death and dying in the 19th century.  Victorians had a different attitude about death than we do in the 21st Century. People died at home surrounded by loved ones, families picnicked in cemeteries on Sundays, took photos with the deceased (what’s up with that?), and made jewelry from their hair (yes, really!). They also worried about being buried alive or someone stealing their bodies. This program explores the Victorians’ fascination with death and the culture they developed to memorialize the dead.
